PMP Executive Creative Committee

The PMP Executive Creative Committee (PMP ECC) is led by a group of dedicated and creative students who have participated in PMP in the past as a mentor and/or mentee and will serve as mentors in the new school year.

The ECC is charged with planning and running the activities of PMP throughout the academic year, which include: mentor training, Meet and Greet, bi-weekly Get To-Gethers, and off-campus activities. Additionally, the ECC provides support to both mentors and mentees for problem-solving, outreach, and more. The ECC works closely with Cultural Center staff and has access to other key offices to help support new students.


  • Commit to two semesters to serve on the ECC. (Continued participation throughout the year and for additional terms is based upon review by Cultural Center staff.)
  • Meet with Cultural Center staff in April to plan together activities for the upcoming year.
  • During each semester meet for one hour per week for planning sessions with Cultural Center staff.
  • Facilitate/lead at least two PMP group activities per semester.
  • Participate in the training of mentors in the spring.
  • Assist with the “matching” of mentors and mentees.

Navigating Hampshire

I came to college with excitement and skepticism. My peer mentor helped me adjust to being in a more rural area, surrounded by many people who didn't look like me. She helped me navigate everything from my tutorial to my weekend social life. Most of all, being in PMP instilled a passion in me that has stayed with me into my third year. Looking back, I'm so glad I was able to take advantage of the resources that Hampshire has to offer.
