The P.E.E.R.S. (Program to Engage and Exchange Resources for Students) mentor program is dedicated to engaging and empowering first-year students to successfully navigate the college experience. The program is designed to give multicultural students a way to create and maintain meaningful relationships with peers and build a connection to the greater UD community. The PEERS program helps to foster an inclusive environment that is rewarding for mentors and mentees. While students learn and grow together, they become active partners in shared learning experiences through programs, services, and relationships. Mentors and mentees will receive personal, social, cultural and academic support that will aid in the retention and persistence towards graduation from UD.
The mentor/mentee relationship is a valuable and reciprical relationship which both parties gain skills and grow. OMA is seeking first-year students who are enthusiastic and are deciated to ensuring they are successul as they navigate the college experience. We are asking that students take the first step in investing in their college career.

• have access to a community of support and resources during key stages of their academic career.
