Meet our 2018-2019 Peer Mentors!

The Peer Mentoring Program is designed to provide support to undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing research and inquiry.  Our peer mentors are wonderful undergraduate and graduate students who represent active researchers and role models from FAU's colleges and partner campuses. If you are interested in participating in undergraduate research or have questions related to how you can get started in research please email one of the mentors in your college to set up a time to meet.  Mentors are available to meet on the Boca Raton and Jupiter Campuses! The Peer Mentor page can tell you more about how YOU can become a mentor too!
