Upcoming Events!

[Retreat] PEER's Annual Fall Retreat!

September 8th-9th || This is a mandatory event!

[Other events TBA!]


External Affairs.

Each year, PEER establishes a close-knit community between mentors and mentees. However, PEER is also unique for its extensive alumni network and its role in the larger Penn community. Through monthly events, workshops and discussions, each year’s PEER class will learn about how to navigate the college journey and important milestones while also building important relationships and connections. Steps will also be taken to foster cross-cultural dialogue with other APSC constituent groups and cultural communities throughout Penn. By building connections with external groups and alumni, PEER hopes to establish a long-lasting legacy within the AAPI and Penn communities for years to come.

Leadership.

We recruit mentors who are established leaders on campus to help guide mentees, holding leadership positions including Asian Pacific Student Coalition, Penn Association for Gender Equity, Penn Taiwanese Society, Penn Atma, Student Financial Credit Union, Phi Gamma Nu, Phi Kappa Psi, Alpha Kappa Delta Phi, and more. In addition to providing leadership training through our mentor community, PEER also hosts a series of leadership workshops throughout the school year.

Service.

Throughout the year, mentees and mentors will attend various volunteer events in the greater Philadelphia community. This year, we are also working with some AAPI organizations, promoting community-wide action to create a better environment for Asian Pacific Americans. It is important to recognize the value of service in our lives and to realize we may have some privileges that we take for granted. PEER hopes that the program will help current and future campus leaders develop a greater awareness of their potential impact on the larger world.

Social.

PEER puts a high emphasis on developing a community dynamic -- mentors and mentees are encouraged to bond with every member in the program. The social scene at Penn can be intimidating, but as a PEER mentee, first-year students have a group of supportive friends with whom they can attend Penn events and share experiences. Often, the friendships developed through PEER last well beyond college. We also organize many social events in order to maintain the community dynamic.
