If you are a new student, you won't begin your IUPUC experience alone. University College (UCOL) has a team of experienced peer mentors who are ready to assist and advise incoming students with academics or getting acclimated to campus life during their first year of studies.
What is a Peer Mentor?
UCOL mentors are part of the first-year seminar's instructional team and work with instructors and advisors to support new IUPUC students. Mentors are role models and resources for new students; their job is to enrich your college experience by engaging you in campus activities, sharing experiences, directing you to university services, and being available if you need advice or encouragement.
Why Serve as a Mentor?
Serving as a UCOL mentor provides upper-level students with an opportunity to gain leadership skills, share their college survival skills with new students, and grow personally as well as professionally. A mentoring position is a great addition to your resume and college scholarship or graduate school applications. Mentors are paid an hourly rate.
Who Can Serve as a Mentor?
Mentors can be any student who has completed at least 12 credit hours at IUPUC with a minimum 2.5 cumulative grade point average. Mentors must be registered at least part-time and carry a course load of at least six credit hours.
