Peer Mentoring Program

Odysseus Orr, Korina Justiniani and Floyd Evans

Peer mentoring is all about creating belonging and community for undergraduate researchers!

The IBA/LSAMP Peer Mentoring Program is a great opportunity to contribute to students' success and development, build awareness of self, resources in our community, and networking opportunities. Peer Mentors are advanced students in IBA who will be paired with a Peer Mentee who is a newer student or affiliated student (e.g., Science Alliance) to our program. Peer Mentors guide Mentees one-on-one through your experience in and out of the lab.

The Peer Mentoring commitment is a semester-long relationship with the expectation that Peer Mentor and Mentee  meet at least three times (zoom preferred) during the course of the semester and participants engage in a reflective writing activities, and attend any required programming.

If interested in participating in the Peer Mentoring program, please email Devon-dawson@uiowa.edu edu to confirm your interest.
