The CUNY Graduate Center History Department’s Peer Mentor Program was founded during the 2014-2015 academic year. A handful of students saw the opportunity for increased constructive communication between students and sought to create an environment where information could be shared and guidance could be provided in a supportive, open, candid manner. Over the course of that year, students took initiative to build a series of workshops dedicated to the First Year Experience, prepping for exams, and teaching undergraduates.
In the years since, the program has grown to include workshops focusing on writing, publishing, conferences, and grants. We have also partnered with a student-led initiative known as Teaching Conversations, which became an official part of our offerings for 2016–2017.
The program as a whole can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is a link to our individual bios and contact information. Do not hesitate to send us your questions or say hello when you see us in the history lounge!
We’re looking forward to working with you this year!
