Resident Peer Mentor Program
Following a student's first year at MIT, the Resident Peer Mentor Program (RPM) gives them an opportunity to support and create community for incoming freshmen in their residence. The ideal RPM is an individual who can draw upon and connect students to resources within the house and across the Institute. Above all, RPMs are role models for other students in their living group and across MIT.
Applications are now closed.
An RPM is appointed for a full academic year, and the interview processes are conducted within your residence hall. Please find the 2018 -2019 interview timeline below. Applicants chosen to interview will be contacted by their Area Director regarding next steps in the process.
