Overview:
Many colleges and universities train upper-level students to mentor peers in a variety of capacities including tutors, academic advisors, resident assistants, instructors/assistants, orientation leaders, and more. This model often proves valuable for both students and the institution, providing student mentors a rich leadership experience, student mentees a strong peer connection, and schools with excellent staff. It is a win-win situation for all and when you consider the cost savings for a college to employ peer mentors, you cannot ignore this productive model.
