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 it’s inception, sixteen years ago, IPMP has become so much more. Today, the IPMP is a mentoring based leadership opportunity and a community open to any IUPUI undergraduate student.
We are a community - a global community of mentors, coordinators, a manager, and of course our mentees hailing from countries all over the world.
Our mission is simple:
We aim to guide the successful social, cultural, and academic adjustment of IUPUI students from all over the world. IPMP equips undergraduate international students with the knowledge, support system, and tools to prosper at IUPUI and in the US.
