The Princeton University Peer Mentoring Program
Who We Are
Under the auspices of the Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding, the Princeton University Mentoring Program consists of three programs:
AAMP: Asian American Mentoring Program
LAMP: Leadership and Mentoring Program
LUNA: Latinos Unidos for Networking and Advising
Each program is facilitated by two or more upper class student coordinators who develop programs and offer support for the incoming student participants.
Why We’re Here
Our mission is to enrich and support the lives of students from historically underrepresented backgrounds through leadership, mentoring, and community building activities. Our goal is to assist first year students in their transition into campus life and provide a network to encourage academic and social exploration.
PUMP matches each first year participant with a mentor from the sophomore, junior or senior class based on similar academic and social interests. The combination of one-on-one and cluster mentoring is designed to support students and also encourage them to contribute to the general Princeton University community.
