Graduate Student Peer Mentors

Graduate Mentorship

The CECAS CU ASPIRE Graduate Peer Mentoring program is dedicated to building an inclusive community and providing support to our graduate students. Our program is designed to promote early success for first year graduate students. The goals of the program include inspiring and encouraging academic excellence, strategies for work/life balance and sharing recommendations and knowledge based on the mentor’s past experiences.

Our peer mentors will serve as a guide, sharing advice about research, time management, relationships with advisors and faculty, networking and so much more.

CECAS Mentors

Our CECAS peer mentors are upper-level graduate students who have completed at least one full year of graduate school in CECAS. We have mentors representing every department, a variety of backgrounds and countries all over the world. Each mentor brings unique experiences that will be valuable to their mentees’ success.

Become a CECAS Mentee

To become a mentee, you must be a first year CECAS graduate student. After submitting the form, you will receive an invitation to a Peer Mentee Welcome and short orientation. During the welcome, we will introduce you to your mentor.

Applications open soon for mentors and mentees. Please contact Tonyia Stewart with any questions.
