General information

What is a mentor?

A mentor is a trusted counselor and guide. They provide guidance in an relatable and respectful manner to promote the success of others. Their ultimate goal is to share common experiences and act as role models for future endeavors.

Why is peer mentoring important?

Peer mentors are individuals that have recently traveled in your shoes. They are on the path to success but still remember the days when they were intimidated and needed help. They are knowledgeable and experienced peers that can relate and pass on the wisdom they have gained in their academic ventures.
