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 required to take T C 125K, Community and Connection: Perspectives on Self In/And Society, 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. A course description is included on the application page linked below.

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 mentors are closed.  


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.

Information about how to apply will be coming soon.

Any questions about the Peer Advising and Plan II Mentorship programs can be addressed to the Peer Advising Coordinator at
