Residential Peer Mentors

What is a Residential Peer Mentor (RPM)?
Residential Peer Mentors (RPMs) at UTA in the Residential Learning Communities (RLCs) are dedicated student leaders committed to supporting the academic and personal success of first-year students and beyond. Serving as positive role models, RPMs promote a culture of learning and growth within the RLCs, facilitating students' transition to university life. From organizing engaging academic and social events to offering support and referrals for on-campus services, RPMs play a crucial role in fostering a supportive community for RLC participants. By providing mentorship, encouragement, and resources, RPMs help students navigate the challenges of their first year and thrive both academically and personally. Through collaboration with RLC staff, faculty, and fellow RPMs, they contribute to building a vibrant and inclusive community where students can excel and reach their full potential.
