Serving as a learning mentor for other undergraduates is a great way to gain leadership experience, hone your own academic skills, and give back to the community.
Peer learning mentor opportunities are available in the following programs:
Gateway Science Workshop (GSW) program
Science Research Workshop (SRW) program
Peer-Led Undergraduate Study (PLUS) program
Mentors are selected through a competitive application process. Qualities of an ideal mentor include solid subject-matter knowledge, excellent interpersonal skills, empathy, and a strong desire to serve and help other students learn.
Peer mentors working in GSW and AMP receive training through SESP 291.
