Peer Support Program (PSP)

The Peer Support Program (PSP) is a mentorship program that connects first-year multicultural students with an experienced, friendly, and knowledgeable peer mentor. Peer mentors find opportunities for newer students to get to know the campus and Chicago area as well as to develop their personal, academic, social, and cultural experiences through programming and guidance. The program is a great way for students to meet other students and get to know about all the offices, people, and programs that can help them succeed at Columbia. To participate in PSP, students need to apply. Space is limited. Current application information is available at

PSP is managed by the Multicultural Affairs office.
