Who We Are

Mission and Purpose of the International Peer Mentor Program:

  1. Build the environment for cross-cultural friendships and community through engaging in meaningful, ongoing relationships with BRIDGE participants of diverse backgrounds.
  2. Increase students’ cross-cultural awareness and global competencies, as well as cross-cultural leadership capacity.
  3. Assist international students with the transition to the United States and to UW-Madison.
  4. Provide a cross-cultural experience to live out the Wisconsin Experience’s core values of empathy, humility, curiosity, and purposeful action.
