The College Track organization selects students from underserved communities in New Orleans and California to attend Tulane. Mentors are a critical component guiding these scholars to a successful college experience.
The Center for Academic Equity has launched its search for new mentors for College Track and Posse students in the class of 2026. Mentors must make to a two-year commitment but are ideally on hand to work with their students through their entire four years at Tulane.
College Track is a comprehensive college completion program that matches mentors with students from urban centers in Louisiana, California, Maryland, and Colorado and supports their academic success.
Posse is rooted in the belief that a small, diverse group of talented students can serve as a catalyst for individual and community development.
These programs identify students from diverse backgrounds, help them apply to selective universities, and help them persist in their academic studies and graduate.
Faculty mentors receive training and support from the Center from Academic Equity, as well as a stipend; Posse mentors are also provided a one-course teaching release each semester for the first two years.
