You are invited to participate in an exciting new peer mentoring program! We know that it can be hard to make connections on campus or find one’s place in an entirely new culture. Liberal Arts is full of amazing resources, but they are only beneficial if people know about them. We want to connect incoming students and make them feel welcome in Liberal Arts. We want them to feel supported and have an enriching experience that results in achieving academic and personal success goals.
As a Peer Mentor, you play a vital role. Mentors will be matched with 1-4 students for the fall to work toward the following success goals:
by helping your peer mentee(s) make connections with the school’s faculty, staff, and student organizations related to their individual interests and career aspirations.
by attending events offered through the School of Liberal Arts with your peer mentee(s).
Define Purpose, Skills and Leadership Role(s)
by guiding your mentee(s) in identifying and making a plan to engage in activities and events in the school and the IUPUI campus community related to their major(s) and interest areas—including but not limited to study abroad, Liberal Arts student organizations, internships—that will help them develop marketable skills necessary post-graduation.
Help Plan a Path to Graduation
by supporting your mentee(s) as they construct short- and long-term academic and career goals, locate and implement use of academic and financial resources to assist them with obtaining those goals—including services offered through Liberal Arts’ academic advisors, career development staff members and the school’s scholarship manager.
by providing them with referrals to faculty mentors based on their academic and career interests.
