Our approximately 40 peer mentors help, guide, and coach their first- and second-year peers, as well as work in close collaboration with the PES professional staff to support and facilitate students' wellbeing and success. To their students, they are advocates, educators, role models, coaches, and friends.
Each peer mentor has a caseload of about 30 students. They meet with them regularly, usually two or more times a semester, over the course of years one and two at the University.
Peer mentors are provided with advanced training and development opportunities based on the following competency areas: leadership, interpersonal communication, self-care, campus & community resources, and diversity & social justice.
