Multicultural Peer Mentor Program
The Multicultural Peer Mentor Program, sponsored by Project ExCEL and the Academic Advising Center, is a brand-new program available to incoming freshmen this fall. This program is designed to assist incoming freshmen (mentees) from racially diverse backgrounds with their transition to Queens College by pairing each of them with an upperclassman (mentor) from a racially diverse background. Peer Mentors will provide academic and social support, guidance, and exposure to the great variety of resources and opportunities at QC.
First-year students interested in becoming a part of this new initiative--led by energetic upperclassmen ready to ensure that you have a great experience at Queens--should apply to this program TODAY!
What could first-year students gain from this program?
· Relationships with students from similar racial and ethnic backgrounds
· Skills that will support a successful transition to college
· Access to the variety of campus resources and university programs available to QC students
· Personal relationship with an upperclass student who is excited about mentoring and willing to assist with the transition
