    Minority Advisory Program

    What it Means to Serve as a Minority Advisor

    Serving as a Minority Advisor is both a privilege and a responsibility.  It is a privilege because you will serve as a role model for first-year students of color who will be entering Carolina this fall.  The Minority Advisory Program was founded to help African American and American Indian first-year students adjust to the academic and social atmosphere at UNC.  Your participation in the program assures each advisee that he or she can succeed at Carolina.

    The qualities of a successful Minority Advisor are:

    1. Enthusiastic commitment to the goals of the program
    2. Excellent communication skills
    3. Maturity, exhibited by sound judgment and common sense
    4. Flexibility and a sense of humor
