Peer Mentor Program


What is the Peer Mentor Program?

Grad school can be hard, and sometimes you may need a little direction and guidance from someone who has been in your shoes. Hence, the Peer Mentor Program aims at providing mentees guidance and learning from their peers as well as mentors the opportunity to develop, and strengthening relationships between students. Each mentee, who is usually a first-year student, will be assigned a continuing student as a Peer Mentor. We pair up mentors and mentees based on their interests.
