The SASHP Peer Mentor Program matches new SASHP students with current students who volunteer to serve as Peer Mentors. Peer Mentors assist first-year students in the transition to Rutgers through sharing information about the university, assisting Mentees with majors, minors, and extracurricular opportunities, and providing friendship and support at SASHP and Rutgers events. Peer Mentors also have access to exclusive academic and social Peer Mentor events throughout the year.
Peer Mentors are required to attend a minimum of one Peer Mentor event and submit a report assessing their Mentor/Mentee relationship each semester.
We are also looking for creative and enthusiastic leaders to serve on the Peer Mentor Programming Board. Programming Board Leaders work as a team to help develop, market, and execute Peer Mentor events, as well as run the Peer Mentor social media accounts.
The 2024-2025 Peer Mentor application will open on Monday, March 4 and will be due on Sunday, March 24.
Current Peer Mentors & Mentees who are interested in applying to the 2024-2025 Peer Mentor Programming Board should mark their interest on the Peer Mentor application. 2024-2025 Programming Board applications will then be sent out Monday, March 25.
