A project will be described to develop a peer-mentorship program that will aid first and second year psychology undergraduate students. The programís specific goals will be to assist students by providing information on how-to access knowledge and resources regarding university programs, study skills (e.g. time management, note-taking), career preparation (e.g. GRE, sub areas in psychology, resume development), and academic counseling. Previous research findings regarding the methods that will be utilized to promote the above behaviors (e.g. goal-setting, behavioral contracting, self-monitoring, and public posting). We are planning a research study to evaluate the programís effectiveness.
