Peer Guidance Program

The Black Resource Center Peer Guidance Program is designed to aid the academic, social and cultural adjustment of incoming first-year students to life at UC San Diego.

Through peer mentoring, the goal of this program is to foster a network of support for culturally diverse historically underrepresented first year students. Peer Guidance Leaders serve as peer support personnel and serve as an extension of the Black Resource Center staff. Through this relationship and sharing program goals, the overall aim is to positively impact the first year adjustment and ultimate retention of student participants.
