The Psychology Peer Mentoring Program assists first year and transfer students in their transition to Stony Brook University and to the department of Psychology. Peer mentors will act as role models and assist new students with their transition into Stony Brook and to the department of Psychology to ensure the persistence and success in the major. They will help students gain knowledge about Stony Brook University, the Psychology department, and the various resources, activities, and programs we have to offer. The main responsibility of a peer mentor is to help support incoming students and act as a more readily available resource for them.
