ENG ME! Peer Mentoring Leaders


ENG ME! Peer Mentoring Leaders provide oversight, support and leadership to the ENG ME! mentors. In addition, they may provide group mentoring to engineering intermediate students in their first year of study at UC, offering direction, encouragement, motivation and friendship through weekly contact for the first 10 teaching weeks of semester 1.
