Sister Circle

RCAH Sister Circle Mentoring Program aims to support the holistic development of women of color undergraduates through culturally responsive programming that addresses the participants’ academic, social, personal and professional needs. The program’s ultimate goal is to address and improve the retention and matriculation rate for RCAH women of color students. Sister Circle helps students build peer relationships along with mentorships through events ranging from informal get-togethers that help build social relationships and a sense of community, to semi-structured study sessions, to more formal workshops featuring invited artists, writers, and other community leaders.
