The Mentoring, Academics, Scholarship, and Achievement Initiative (MASAI) is a University College mentoring program that is focused on the retention of first-year underrepresented and first-generation students. In particular, MASAI supports over 100 first-year students from the Noble Street Charter School Network.
MASAI partners incoming first-year Noble students with a current Illinois State student to facilitate a successful transition into the University community and assist them with creating an optimal academic and social experience at ISU.
