The AIM Program (Advanced Immersion Mentoring)

As Washington and Lee continues to intensify our focus on increasing the diversity of our student body and fostering a more inclusive environment, AIM as our Quality Enhancement Plan promises to be an excellent way to provide support and inclusion for students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds. AIM is being modeled after the former Advanced Research Cohort (ARC) Program for STEM fields with the goal of empowering a select group of incoming first-year students from varied backgrounds, allowing them to return for their first year of college with an increased sense of belongingness and confidence.
