Peer mentors receive a stipend of $250 per semester.  Mentors must commit to mentoring five students for at least one academic year.  A successful mentor will:

  • Support students during their academic and social adjustment to college
  • Know how to refer students to appropriate campus resources when needed
  • Work with individual instructors and departments to develop smaller communities to involve and engage students in their college experience.

Peer mentors are required to attend training sessions. During the first 10 weeks of the fall semester, mentors will be required to make contact with their students at least five times. Those 10 weeks are critical to helping new students adjust to college life. Mentors can arrange meeting times with assigned mentees based on their schedules.

Peer mentors provide a great service to their fellow students.

Peer mentoring provides wonderful opportunities to contribute to your college and community and thereby build your academic resume.
