It might sound ridiculous, but “potty parity” is an issue…

Calling Alums of Asian Descent
The College Programming Office is proud to announce that the University of Chicago now has a mentorship program for undergraduate students of Asian descent. The Asian/Asian American mentorship program was initiated by two dedicated and devoted students: Esther Chae, AB’01, and Angela Lam, AB’01, who made academic and personal sacrifices to ensure that the program got off to a good start. The program has since received institutional support in the form of some financial sponsorship and two staff coordinators. The program currently has 30 undergraduate participants whose ethnic backgrounds span every Asian region—South, Southeast, and East; these participants are mentored by faculty, staff, graduate students, alums, and young professionals. The common denominator in each relationship is that the mentor is asked to contact his/her undergraduate at least once every two weeks. In other respects, each relationship is meant to develop uniquely to fit the student’s needs.

As a result, many undergraduates have discussed a wide spectrum of concerns—from the personal and social to the cultural and professional—with their mentors. As word of the mentorship program continues to spread, more and more interested undergraduates ask to participate, and the program is now running short on both resources and mentors.

If you are interested in learning more about the program and how to participate, please contact Linda Choi (; 773/834-4182).
