Welcome to the Sam Fox Peer Mentoring Program!

The mission of the program is to foster a supportive community among undergraduate students in the College of Art and the College of Architecture. Through partnering with ASC and Art Co, the program encourages mentors and mentees to engage with each other in small groups, large groups, and one-on-one. The goals of the program are to build community within the Sam Fox School, promote positive studio culture, and encourage student health and well-being. 

The structure of the program consists of a Sam Fox student being paired with 4-5 first-year students for the fall and spring semesters. Mentors are paired with mentees from their same program of study. Mentor selection takes place in mid/late spring by application. 

For the 2023-24 academic year, Holy Kim (holy.k@wustl.edu; Architecture) and Grace Woodruff (g.m.woodruff@wustl.edu; Art) are serving as liaisons between the peer mentors and ASC and Art Co, respectively. Mentors with questions about programming opportunities are free to reach out to either Holy or Grace. 

Questions about the Sam Fox Peer Mentor Program in general can be directed to the faculty coordinator, John Early (johne@wustl.edu).
