For Mentors

Peer mentors will act as role models and assist new students with their transition into CEAS to ensure the persistence and success in their engineering program. They will help students gain knowledge about Stony Brook University, CEAS, and the various resources, activities, and programs we have to offer. Peer mentors will also encourage long lasting connections with CEAS students, staff, and faculty while assisting with any transitional issues students may have. The main responsibility of a peer mentor is to help support incoming students and act as a more readily available resource for them.
