Apply to be a COSMIC Peer-to-Peer Mentor

The College of Science Mentoring and Inclusion Collaborative, better known as COSMIC, is intended to support incoming freshmen with their transition to college by matching them with an upperclassman mentor who comes from a similar background and shares similar interests. To find that upperclassman, incoming freshmen will complete an online profile about themselves, their experiences and their interests. The profile will then be matched with a mentor based on these criteria. We are currently piloting this program for under-represented students in the College of Science, and are looking for mentors. Check back here for more information in the future.
