Who is this program for?

Any incoming African-American, Asian-American, American Indian, and Hispanic/Latino students interested in being a part of a supportive community that provides one-on-one guidance and encouragement during their first year at University of Wisconsin-Superior.

Why Peer Mentorship?

The first year of college can be very challenging socially, academically, and personally. By pairing the prospective mentees with an upper level student (typically junior or senior) in good academic standing and a similar life experience, they will be receiving a positive first year experience to take with them throughout their time at UW-Superior. This program is designed to create a solid foundation of connections, resources, and relationships around the campus to help first-year students transition and succeed in the UW-Superior family.

What is Peer Mentorship?

Mentors are well-rounded resources for any questions or concerns first-year students may have. Knowing and building a friendship with an experienced peer on campus will also give mentees opportunities to participate in fun social events and student organizations. Mentor/mentee teams will contact each other once a week for the first semester and participate in monthly group meetings with everyone in the program. This aspect will give the incoming student a great sense of community and a comfortable campus environment.
