Rockefeller Peer Mentoring Program

The Rockefeller Peer Mentoring Program (RPMP) pairs first-year students interested in leadership and public policy with juniors and seniors actively engaged at the Rockefeller Center.


RPMP pairs first-year undergraduates with mentors in their junior or senior year with similar interests and experience in the field of public policy.

Throughout the spring term, RPMP participants explore networking and mentorship strategies to help make the most of opportunities at Dartmouth and prepare to seek mentors in the professional world. The program aims to:

  • Provide a resource for students seeking experience in public policy
  • Expand awareness of resources at the Rockefeller Center and throughout campus
  • Develop mentorship and networking skills that will be vital in the professional world
  • Provide a mechanism through which seniors can give back to the Rockefeller Center and the Dartmouth community
