Margot Minardi, Assistant Professor, History & Humanities

Minardi volunteers with the Portland chapter of Minds Matter, a one-on-one college preparation mentoring program that matches high-potential students from low-income families with committed adult mentors. Minds Matter is a three year program that allows for relationships between mentors/mentees to be meaningful and lasting. Minardi believes that, especially in light of current political struggles that equate education with elitism, it should be part of the college’s mission to “make it clear why the intellectual work in college really matters and what it can accomplish in the rest of the world.”
