Mentoring

There are several mentoring programs available through WEP that help guide undergraduate students and give upperclass and graduate students the opportunity to serve as mentors for current and prospective students.

Peer Assistance Leaders

WEP Peer Assistance Leaders (PALs) are upperclass engineering students who volunteer to mentor incoming first-year, new transfer and international engineering women students, helping the transition into UT and the Cockrell School.

Graduates Linked with Undergraduates in Engineering (GLUE)

The WEP GLUE program offers opportunities for engineering graduate students to mentor undergraduate engineering students in a unique, introductory, practical research experience. The program is one-semester long and is offered in the fall and spring semesters.

Texas STEM Connections

To sign up to be a STEM mentor or volunteer or to request STEM volunteers for events such as science fairs, career days or competitions, we utilize the Texas STEM Connections database, a portal for educators and community members to request STEM students and professionals to volunteer for virtual or in-person opportunities to inspire K-12 and college-level students about STEM.
