About the Program:
The IU School of Liberal Arts Peer Mentoring Program at IUPUI is a year-long experience for students to be matched with a peer mentor. Each spring, peer mentors are matched with peer mentees for the fall semester.
Apply early, as there are limited spaces available for the 2020-2021 academic year:
- Application deadline for mentors: We are no longer accepting applications for peer mentors for the 2020-2021 academic year. Those interested in applying to be a peer mentor should apply each year in the spring semester. Please check back in the spring semester for updated application deadlines.
