CULTURE's Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program is an opportunity for students to connect with a community of peers.

CULTURE's Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program is an opportunity for first-year and continuing students of color, or those who identify as underserved and underrepresented, to be plugged into a community of peers.

Our peer mentors are trained, experienced upper-level students who will guide you through resources and opportunities at the University at Buffalo. Peer mentors share the conviction that participating in CULTURE's intentionally designed programming will enrich your college experience and help you foster a connection to the UB community.

Through P2P Mentoring, you will be empowered to:

  • Make contact with people who are committed to your success.
  • Build a sense of community with your peers inside and outside the classroom.
  • Utilize the available resources on and off campus.
  • Discuss concerns and challenges you may experience in connecting with the UB community. 
  • Build networks with other students, staff and faculty across campus.
  • Gain insights needed to achieve personal and academic goals.
