- Our goals include (1) increasing collaboration efforts among the minority student organizations; (2) increasing involvement in our mentorship program; and (3) expanding our alumni network.
- Created by the MSA in 2010, the Legal Scholar Mentorship Program promotes community involvement and public service by collaborating with the Jeremiah E. Burke High School in Dorchester.
