The Pan Asian Student Services Internship and Mentor Program was established in 2009 in alignment of the ASIA scholarship.This program is designed to help new students transition into Augsburg, navigate Augsburg’s college system, and connect with peers creating a more welcoming and supportive environment.
The Pan Asian Student Services Mentor Program pairs incoming students (First Year and/or Transfer undergraduates) with an Asia Leadership Scholar. All mentors have completed at least 1 full year at Augsburg and have completed peer academic advising training and mentor/mentee relationship and responsibility workshops.
The goal of this model is to capture group mentoring as well as individual Mentoring. Through the interactions with each Family Pods, we hope to create a community that will flourish to the greater community. Also, being intentional about the individual needs, we have an ASIA Scholar paired with an incoming first year or transfer student to help ease their undergraduate journey.

These students have shown exceptional involvement and great passion in assisting underrepresented students on campus. FL are the medium between the director and intern of the Pan-Asian Student Services.

Mentors are responsible for sharing resources and allowing a space for intentional relationships with mentees and Family Leaders. These students are interested and committed to the academic success of their peers. Mentors also work with other mentors to coordinate Family Outings and provide supplemental materials for mentee.
Mentees are typically first years or transfer students who are interested in connecting with peers and willingness to engage. Apply to be a mentee!
