About Mentor Collective
James Lu Morrissey and Jackson Boyar founded Mentor Collective in 2014. Originally, they started by doing pro bono work with a few regional universities in Boston by designing mentorship programs for international students. Over time, those early partners encouraged James and Jackson to consider supporting more diverse student populations.
Now, Mentor Collective partners with more than 150 institutions serving a variety of student populations.
