Cultural Peer Mentors

Cultural Peer Mentors (CPMs) are student leaders who help new international students become acclimated to Marymount Manhattan College and to the larger New York City community.

Those selected to become CPMs will undergo training by College staff to gain the skills necessary to enable them to serve as resources for international students. CPMs interact with new international students to provide them with a clear understanding of MMC life and opportunities while encouraging their involvement in the College community. They are role models, advisors, and friends; but most of all, they are students themselves who care about helping their classmates from abroad integrate seamlessly into college life.

You can find the application for the 2020 - 2021 Cultural Peer Mentor staff through this link.
