As a community, DEAP is invested in supporting students in the many transitions made during their college careers. The first transition begins upon entering IUPUI. This transition is supported and guided by DEAP peer mentoring. DEAP peer mentors are scholars who have successfully made the transition into college.
Another pivotal transition is the process of narrowing focus on specific career goals and skills. This is the transitional area supported by DEAP NextUp Mentoring Program. NextUp mentors consist of IUPUI faculty, staff, and community members who volunteer their time to help scholars sharpen their professional and research skills. From entering to exiting the university, DEAP mentoring is available to scholars as they move through their journeys at IUPUI.
