Peer Mentors

UD's First Year Seminar program is seeking Peer Mentors for fall 2016.

The DENIN Student Programs Committee, now in its second year, is a small group of specially selected volunteers from across campus who assist DENIN in reaching out to students.

Members of the Student Programs Committee serve as

  • Ambassadors — representing DENIN at campus-wide events
  • A focus group — providing input to DENIN staff about what students are interested in and concerned about
  • Event planners — carrying out events for students that further the educational objectives of DENIN
  • Promoters — assisting in promoting DENIN events, especially to the student population
  • Activists — helping to create a sustainable campus by communicating scientific information effectively.

“We’re looking for people who are passionate about promoting environmental awareness and have some innovative ideas about how we can involve more students in meaningful environmental activities,” says junior Amelia Snelling, the group’s current chair.

She notes that students who join the group may remain members until their graduation if they choose.

Questions and completed application forms should be addressed to Snelling at
