Mentor UPP: Undergraduate Peer Partnering is a mentoring and networking program designed to cultivate relationships between upperclassmen and underclassmen to increase involvement, retention, and confidence in the newest members of the College of Engineering. Freshmen, sophomores, and transfer students are matched in groups with one to two junior or senior mentors who provide a support system along with offering assistance and information to freshmen as they adapt to campus and college life at The University of Alabama. Mentees are encouraged to complete their freshman and sophomore years in Mentor UPP, and then give back to future students as peer mentors.
