Stamps Engaging Leaders is a cohort-based peer-to-peer program connecting returning undergraduate students with first-year and transfer undergraduate students. The goal is to increase a sense of connection, engagement, and community within the Stamps undergraduate community. This is accomplished through peer-to-peer group interactions guided by Stamps Peer Leaders (returning Stampers) who are trained to deliver intentional points of contact and programmatic efforts to first-year Stampers, including transfer students.
Stamps Engaging Leaders aims to engage incoming new students in a hybrid format. Once on campus at the beginning of the fall semester, Stamps Peer Leaders have the responsibility to engage their respective cohorts of students with regular in-person and virtual check-ins throughout the first three months of school while connecting new students to campus resources conducive to students’ transitioning to college.
