The Peer Mentoring Program is designed to assist first-year scholars with their transition into the IUPUI community. The program provides each scholar with caring mentors, role models, group and individual mentoring sessions, and network events that focus on developing strategies for academic and personal success.
Our peer mentors help students navigate the system of higher education by sharing information, providing guidance, and connecting students to all of the available campus and community resources that will help to ensure their timely degree completion. Participating scholars meet biweekly for a group mentoring session and once a month for individual mentoring sessions.
The 21st Century Scholars Success Program is searching for dedicated and enthusiastic undergraduate students to be a part of the 21st Century Scholars Team!
