Peer Advising Training

Diversity Peer Advisors (DPA)

Diversity Peer Advisors (DPAers) are trained undergraduate students who work together to proactively address issues of diversity and create a campus community based on inclusion, equity, and respect.  DPAers are available to provide campus programming, referrals to resources, and non-judgmental individual peer support to all Dartmouth students.  Contact a Diversity Peer Advisor.

International Student Mentors

Ten international and U.S. upperclass Dartmouth students were selected to be International Student Mentors (ISMs) in a highly competitive selection process.  Each mentor is assigned a group of approximately eight to twelve new international undergraduates.  ISMs assist and befriend Dartmouth's newest international undergraduates through pre-arrival correspondence, meeting new international students at Logan International Airport and at the bus stop in Hanover in September, and by helping new internationals get settled when they first arrive on campus.  ISMs continue to help new students get off to a good start at Dartmouth during Orientation.  The formal work of advising new international undergraduates continues throughout the fall and winter terms as needed (and friendship continues well beyond that).
