Undergraduate Mentors

OUR Undergraduate Mentors

Undergraduate Mentors (UMs) are personal advocates who help actualize your personal academic interests. They connect peers to programs, opportunities, and resources to more deeply engage with research, creative expression, and scholarship. UMs hold appointments to discuss your own academic curiosity and to develop your personalized education path.
