LEAD Ambassadors

LEAD Ambassadors are prepared to assist in the social, personal, and academic acclimation to Fisk by pairing incoming first year students with outstanding sophomore, junior, senior students who act as mentors throughout the academic year. In addition to providing support, mentors are also bridge-builders between their first year mentees and the student service departments across campus. This means that students have a ready resource for questions ranging from where and how to get involved in student activities to how to add a class or declare a major.
