Peer Mentor Program

Information and links for the Department of Anthropology's Peer Mentor Program.

Have a question about becoming an anthropology major? Want a student perspective on interesting courses to take? Looking for support as you identify research and study abroad opportunities? Wondering how to get involved in departmental work? If so, you should talk with one of the department’s undergraduate mentors!

The specific goals of the mentor program are:

  • To enhance the department's collegial atmosphere
  • To provide resources and information for majors and minors in the department
  • To provide peer support to students facing difficulties, whether academic or otherwise
  • To identify peers that students can approach with questions or concerns

Since 2018, two mentors each year have worked to expand the program and meet the needs of Anthropology students. This has included: online panels about internship opportunities, graduate school applications, and resume writing; curated tours for interested students of faculty and student research at the CACHe lab; digital and print resources; drop-in office hours; a departmental newsletter; outreach via tabling and creation of social media content; and Anthropology Day events, among other projects.
