The Peer Mentoring Program is an exciting volunteer opportunity for sophomores, juniors, and seniors looking to gain leadership and teaching experience.
The College of Art and Design Peer Mentoring Program is a peer support system for first-year students. Sophomores and juniors serve as mentors to provide guidance, advocacy, friendship and advice to freshman. Additionally, mentors are afforded the opportunity to develop unique leadership skills and to positively affect the lives of first-year visual arts students.
