The New Scientist Peer Academic and Leadership (NS-PAL) provides 1-on-1 mentoring to underrepresented minority (URM) students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) concentrations. 

NS-PAL seeks mentors who are science concentrators, well-rounded and share a desire to serve NSC by supporting its first-year mentees. NS-PAL mentors help mentees to navigate the academic and social landscape of the university, and work together to sustain a strong sense of community among URM scholars, broadly.
