New Student Peer Mentoring Program


The New Student Peer Mentoring Program (NSPMP) is for any new undergraduate student (mentee) at the University of Manitoba. Mentees will be matched with a trained upper-year student (peer mentor) who will help them learn more about the University of Manitoba, their faculty, and their first year as a new university student.

Mentors and mentees will meet twice a month (for at least half an hour each time) throughout the academic year. All participants in the program are required to attend a monthly session/meeting with their peers to build important skills related to their role in the program. NSPMP also offers a variety of optional social events that all program participants are welcome to attend.
