The Mississippi Outreach to Scholastic Talent (MOST) Mentoring Program is a partnership with the MOST Conference. During the summer, the University hosts the MOST Conference for rising high school seniors. The goal of the summer conference is to expose prospective African American students to leadership activities, academic offerings, campus resources, faculty, staff, and student leaders. Following the conference, MOST Mentors will help to guide and support students through the admission process into the University of Mississippi and throughout their freshmen year. Participants are also invited back to campus to participate in a reunion event. The Summer 2017 Conference will be held July 16-18th.

The purpose of the AAMERG Initiative, which stands for African American Males: Enrolling. Retaining. Graduating., is to unite UM faculty, staff, and students through community outreach, mentoring, personal and professional development, and servant leadership. The ultimate goal of the AAMERG initiative is to strengthen efforts for recruiting, educating, retaining, and graduating African American males at the University of Mississippi. AAMERG Ambassadors serve as peer leaders, liaisons between students and faculty/staff, and key programming coordinators for events that serve the interests of African American males both on and off campus.

UM CONNECT will match incoming freshmen of color (Latin American, Native American, African American, Asian American, and multi-racial) and first-generation students with an upperclassmen mentor. The program will serve as a vital component to the academic and personal success for students. Through e-mail, social media contacts, monthly scheduled events, and 1:1 meetings, CONNECT Mentors will provide additional support that enables students to complete their first year at the University and remain on a course toward graduation.
