Peer Mentors

LiFT peer mentors provide encouragement and support to LiFT scholars at IUPUI and Ivy Tech to support their success and academic and social integration into the LiFT Scholars Program and their institution. Peer mentors may also serve as student assistants for the program providing administrative and logistics support to the LiFT Scholars Program overall.

Peer mentors are critical to the success of the LiFT Scholars Program and we are happy to have eight peer mentors for the 2019-2020 year, three of whom are Ivy Tech LiFT scholars who transferred to IUPUI to pursue their bachelor’s degree in informatics.
