Peer-2-Peer Mentorship Program

The Peer-2-Peer Mentorship Program (P2P) is a GUTS pilot program intended to support first-year students, second-year students, and transfer students who have started college during the pandemic or who do not have much familiarity with the UW-Madison campus and its resources. Students who participate in this program will be matched with a peer mentor who will meet with them, respond to their questions or concerns, and help them get acclimated to UW-Madison’s campus.

Get a Mentor!

Are you a first-year student, second-year student, and/or a transfer student? Get a mentor through the Peer-2-Peer Mentorship Program (P2P).

Mentees will be matched with a peer mentor that is a valuable resource to become accustomed to the UW-Madison campus and culture. Topics you can discuss with your mentor include: navigating campus resources and support services, college student wellbeing and involvement, academic confidence, popular hangouts, and university traditions.

GUTS will pair mentees with mentors and make periodic check-ins, however this  program is quite student-driven–you will get out of it what you put into it.  It is the participants’ responsibility to determine additional frequency of meetings, length of meetings, come prepared with specific questions or topics to discuss, and work to build rapport.
