You are invited to participate in an exciting new program for a select group of incoming students! We know that this transition is a pivotal time for you. As an incoming student, there is still much to consider as you confirm your goals and create action plans that move you closer to graduation. During this transition time, we want you to feel supported and have an enriching experience that results in achieving academic and personal success goals.
As part of this program, you will be matched with a Peer Mentor, who is a fellow Liberal Arts Jaguar. Your Mentor’s goals are to help you work toward the following:
Be a Part of the Liberal Arts Community
by helping you make connections with your peers, who will connect you with faculty, staff, and student organizations in the school related to your individual interests and career aspirations.
by attending events offered through the School of Liberal Arts with your peer mentor.
Define Your Purpose, Skills and Leadership Role(s)
by identifying and making a plan to engage in activities and events in the school and the IUPUI campus community related to your major(s) and interest areas—including but not limited to study abroad, Liberal Arts student organizations, internships—that will help you develop marketable skills necessary post-graduation.
Plan Your Path to Graduation
by constructing your short- and long-term academic and career goals, and locate and implement use of academic and financial resources to assist you with obtaining those goals. Services offered through Liberal Arts’ academic advisors, career development staff members and the school’s scholarship manager, amongst others are present to help you complete your degree program.
by gaining referrals to faculty mentors based on your academic and career interests.
