Peer Mentor Questionnaire

New Cooper Union Students,  

As I mentioned in my  previous communication, we will be matching all our incoming undergraduate students with a current student to serve as a peer mentor. To help us match students, we would appreciate it if you would complete a  brief questionnaire  so we can learn more about you and use that information to help match you with a current student.  

Please complete this  brief questionnaire  by Thursday, June 25, 2020: 

We hope to provide you with information about your peer mentor during the week of June 29th  when we send your first weekly Orientation Guide.  

I hope you and your loved ones are well and I look forward to our journey together!  


  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
