The goal of the Peer Outreach Mentoring Program (POMP) is to provide a support system by connecting UCF Rosen College students with peer mentors, who have demonstrated high scholastic standards, possess qualities that match the goals of the POMP, and are knowledgeable about UCF’s Rosen College. Peer Mentors are upper-class UCF Rosen College undergraduate students, assist a group of their peers who would like to enhance their collegiate experience. Mentees may consist of New Transfers, Freshman, At Risk, Readmission, Probation students or any other student that wants to become more involved on campus and in the hospitality industry. The mentoring process provides all program members with the information, support, and encouragement they need to be successful. Please note that Peer Mentor positions are strictly volunteer-based. POMP is a certified mentoring program through the College Reading & Learning Association and is a National Award-Winning Program.
