STEM|ASSIST (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math| Active
Student Support to Integrate STEM Transfers) Peer Mentor Program
STEM|ASSIST peer mentor program strives to connect new transfer
students in one of our targeted majors (Chemistry, Computer
Science, Earth Science, Mathematics, and Physics) with a current
SU STEM peer mentor. The goal of the STEM|ASSIST program
is to expedite the integration of our new transfer students,
both socially and academically, by providing them with
introductions to the faculty and resources available to them on
campus, in the departments, and around town.
The peer mentors will complement the
advising relationship and will assist new transfer students with
tips on how to navigate through the system (and SU generally),
balance family, job, social, and academic demands, and connect
with the major department and SU.
