A peer mentor is an experienced and well-trained first-generation UB student who helps new to UB-first-generation students navigate the transition to UB or their chosen program. Peer mentors serve as role models who demonstrate the value of fostering interconnected relationships and support their mentees towards increased engagement and participation in the university community. While establishing reciprocal and dynamic relationships with their mentees, peer mentors exemplify academic integrity, responsible decision making, and a vested interest in UB and student success. Mentors will serve as a buddy, a coach, and advocate for their mentee(s). Mentors will begin working with their student(s) over the summer during the remote Summer Bridge component of the program and throughout the entire 2022-2023 academic year.
*** You may be paid in campus cash if you hold other campus jobs and/or have work-study***
