Your Academic Peer Mentor
Your peer mentor is an undergraduate student like you! They have demonstrated strong academic skills and resilience in their academic journey. Some have also served as tutors in the Academic Success Center. Your peer mentor will help you explore and develop your academic skills as well as help you set and reflect on weekly goals.
Peer Mentoring Time Commitment
Mentees commit to working with their peer mentor every week for one hour. At your first meeting, you will find a time that works best for you and your mentor’s schedule.
Spring 2021 Mentoring Will Occur Online
During the Spring 2021 semester, Academic Peer Mentoring will occur via Zoom. When you are matched with an Academic Peer Mentor, you will receive a link to their Zoom room and a potential first meeting time.
