CWIT Peer Mentoring

“My peer mentor really helped me with what classes to pick and building study groups.”

“…Met some friends, and got help when I needed it”

75% of  last year’s Affiliates rated their peer mentoring experience as EXCELLENT or GOOD

To request a mentor or to become a mentor you must register to be a CWIT Affiliate.

New Students Request a Peer Mentor: New freshman and transfer women (and interested men) who are majoring in engineering, computer science, and information systems can request a peer mentor for their first semester at UMBC.

Returning Students Volunteer to Be a Peer Mentor: Returning students are invited to volunteer to be a peer mentor to a new freshman or transfer student beginning in the fall or spring semester. Volunteers commit to mentoring a new student for one semester!

A short Peer Mentoring Kick-Off Session will be held at the beginning of the fall semester for all peer mentoring program participants. Mentors and mentees will meet each other at the event.
