The multicultural peer mentoring project supports first-year students as they embark on their Hamilton education.
Although the program is open to any new student who desires a peer mentor, its purpose is to assist international, first-generation (first in the family to attend college) and historically underrepresented students with their transition to college life. Recruitment of program participants takes place the summer before students arrive at Hamilton. Invitations to join the project are sent by email. Prospective mentees are asked to provide information about their personal and academic interests in order to match them with a compatible peer mentor.

  • The Multicultural Peer Mentoring Program provides new students with a fellow student mentor who can guide them, help them access people and resources as needed, and act as a role model and advocate.  Associate Dean of Students for Multicultural Affairs Allen Harrison explained that the program is open to any new student who wants a mentor but its purpose is to assist international, first-generation (first in the family to attend college) and historically underrepresented students with their transition to college life.

  • Transitioning to college can be tough for anyone, and international, first-generation, and historically underrepresented students may face additional challenges. Recognizing the possible need for extra support in taking this step into higher education, Hamilton created the Multicultural Peer Mentoring Project (MP²). Peer mentors offer these students more assistance based on their own experiences making the same transition.
