Peer Advising & Mentoring

Plan II Mentor Program (P2PM):

In an effort to ease the transition for Plan II freshmen into college life and the Plan II community, all Plan II freshmen are strongly encouraged to take T C 125K, Perspectives, during their first fall semester. This course will be taught by our Plan II Director, Dr. Alexandra Wettlaufer. The curriculum of the course will address essential topics that reflect the values of the Plan II Program.

As part of the course, Peer Mentors will guide a pod of 10-12 freshmen in facilitated discussions and activities to enhance the student experience of becoming part of the Plan II community. Peer mentors are experienced students who will help their pod discover amazing UT resources as well as be available as a peer and friend to answer any questions that freshmen may have about campus life as a Plan II student.

 

Applications for the fall 2020 program are NOW OPEN. Please note that peer mentors are now PAID POSITIONS. The deadline to apply as a peer mentor is Monday, April 13th, 2020. To read more about eligibility, commitment and benefits of being a Plan II Peer Mentor, please access the Fall 2020 Peer Mentor Application page. 

 

The Peer Advising Program:

All Plan II Freshmen are advised during their first round of registration (registering for courses for the spring of their first year) in part by trained 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year students during “Peer Advising Week” in mid-October. This provides invaluable guidance from students who can attest to the actual experiences of balancing Plan II classes with other majors, extracurricular activities, and other student challenges.

How to Apply:

Peer Advisors will be trained in the fall to help with Peer Advising Week in mid-October. If you are interested, please fill out the online application.

Any questions about the Peer Advising and Plan II Mentorship programs can be addressed to the Peer Advising Coordinator at p2peeradvising@gmail.com.
