About the Pulse Mentorship Program
The Pulse Mentorship Program is a mentorship program currently for young adults in the Fargo-Moorhead area. The program is supported and developed by MSUM students and staff within the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (CMU 120), the Rainbow Dragon Center (Bridges 150), and SPECTRUM.

Our goal is to connect students in the LGBT+ community and/or questioning individuals looking for guidance with a mentor they can trust and have conversations with without fear of judgment.
