International Peer Mentoring Program
The International Peer Mentoring Program started as an idea. It was an idea to help IUPUI students from all over the world with their transition to both university and American life. At that time, we had a few volunteers who helped the Office of International Affairs welcome new students. Since its inception, sixteen years ago, IPMP has become so much more. Today, the IPMP is a mentoring-based leadership opportunity and a community open to all IUPUI students.
Who are the IPMP Mentors?
IPMP attracts undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds. Many mentors are international students themselves or have lived/studied abroad and understand the experience of acclimating to a new culture. Most of them have extensive leadership experience or exhibit the qualities necessary to become outstanding leaders.
To qualify, students must have a minimum cumulative G.P.A of 2.80 and have completed at least one year of study at IUPUI.
