In 1979, the Black Student Alliance (BSA) developed a peer-mentoring program called the All-Star League Program, primarily as a one-on-one big brother/big sister program. In 1990, under the leadership of Leila Crawford, the program became part of the Office of Multicultural Programs and Services (OMPS) and received a name change to the Multicultural Outreach and Resources at Emory (MORE) Mentoring Program. Although MORE began as a peer-mentoring program in the 1980s to primarily serve African heritage students and has traditionally targeted African heritage and Latinx/Hispanic heritage students, it serves all incoming students. In recent years, it has expanded to include a robust faculty/staff mentoring component. These Family Mentors help achieve Emory Campus Life's goals of encouraging the holistic development of students and creating a more inclusive, culturally competent community at Emory.
Currently, the program is composed of 22 MORE Mentors divided into four families. Each Mentor is assigned two incoming student Mentees. Additionally, each family of Mentors and Mentees is assigned one Family Mentor.
