The Transfer Pipeline Program is a new program by the Hunter College AANAPISI Project (HCAP) and BMCC-Hunter AANAPISI Bridge Initiative (ABI) to provide peer mentorship and a supportive community for incoming transfer students to Hunter.

This program is open to all, but focuses on incoming transfer students who identify as Asian American (including but not limited to: South Asian, Southeast Asian, East Asian, Central Asian, West Asian, Indo-Caribbean) and/or first-generation college students (your parent(s) did not attend college in this country).

We are currently recruiting for mentees (Transfer Students at Hunter College) for the Fall 2021 semester. Learn more and apply by August 4th at bit.ly/tppmentee

Have you always wanted to write about your life but didn’t know where to begin? Would you benefit from a creative writing class that would help improve your overall reading, speaking, writing, and listening skills in university courses? Join writer Bushra Rehman for a series of creative writing workshops in which we will explore our relationship to this vibrant, resilient metropolis we may call home. Together, we will generate new writing, learn about revision and publishing, practice techniques for overcoming writing blocks and celebrate our creativity.

Each workshop will include a series of short readings and generative writing prompts as well as time to share our writing.

Apply at bit.ly/summerwriting21 by June 14th.

HCAP is now recruiting its first cohort of Transfer Peer Mentors (TPMs). We hope to accept 8-10 mentor applicants for our first cohort. TPMs will receive hands-on leadership coaching, skills training, and mentorship to become peer leaders who can assist incoming transfer students in navigating their Hunter experience. Training topics include: leadership skills, public speaking, facilitation, sharing resources, community outreach, event planning and Asian American community issues.

Transfer Peer Mentors commit to participating in the program for the summer training and full academic year (Fall ‘21 – Spring ‘22).
