Building on the program developed in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the Graduate School will initiate a new peer mentoring program across campus. Because the number of experienced graduate students will always exceed the number of incoming students, the program can scale to accommodate all new students. New students (mentees) are matched electronically with peer mentors based on social and academic interests. Mentors and mentees meet as a group with the faculty coordinator monthly over dinner for an organized program. The individual mentor/mentee pairs meet weekly for lunch or dinner for regular discussion and interaction. Mentors are trained in advance and directed to cover an array of issues that are important for academic success. If you have any questions, please contact us at eMentoring@purdue.edu.
Mentees are first-year graduate students, who are paired with advanced graduate students to discuss topics that facilitate the academic and social integration into the graduate program at Purdue.
