Peer Mentors offer Academic and Social Engagement Support
The Peer Mentor Program supports the academic and social engagement of first and second year students as they transition to college life at KU. Mentees are paired with an academically successful upper division student based on major, career and/or personal interests. Mentees will meet regularly with their mentor to ask questions, and discuss topics critical the student’s academic success. Mentees will learn more about campus resources, campus involvement, effective learning strategies based on individual learning styles, and time management. Peer mentors will also provide opportunities for mentees to meet and learn from each other through facilitated programming and group study sessions
Due to Covid-19, all programming and meetings will be held virtually through the fall semester. This allows us to provide more versatile support for all students whether they are attending classes in person or online.
