What is mentoring?
The WGS Peer Mentoring Program is intended to connect our incoming majors and minors with more advanced students in the program. A peer mentor is a junior or senior who can serve as a resource and a sounding board for new students.
One of the great things about mentors is that they have the first-hand knowledge about being an IU South Bend student and navigating the WGS program. They can give you great advice about everything from coursework, scheduling, activism, internships and much more. New students (mentees) are able to take advantage of mentors’ knowledge and familiarity with the university and build stronger relationships with other students in our program.
