Peer Mentors

Peer Mentors are upper-class students who serves as a resource, a helping handing, a sounding board, and a referral service. Each mentor provides useful advice to their mentees to help them acclimate to the University, succeed academically, and pursue their careers in the field of biomedical research.

“One of the great things about Peer Mentors is that they have had at least two years of being in the program. They really serve as allies, advocates and coaches for incoming students while helping them maximize their undergraduate research experiences.”
