A student may be identified as eligible for the program by a member of staff either from Counselling or Disability Services. Students may also access the program through Learning Strategies Development at the Learning Commons in Stauffer Library, room 142.
All students can submit their requests for a Peer Mentor from the beginning of the academic year in September, until the Friday before Reading Week, at the very latest.
Students requesting a Peer Mentor should email the Coordinator, (firstname.lastname@example.org) and include: their name, student number, their program, year in their program, and, if applicable, course-specific needs. They should indicate their referral source (if they have one), and attach a current class schedule in a Word document.
Liz will email students to offer an intake appointment on a first-come first-served basis. At the meeting, Liz will obtain specific details on the academic program you are in and the difficulties you are encountering. Students are carefully matched with Peer Mentors on the basis of Mentor availability and "fit" with the student's academic program and interests. There is a $20 fee for program participation.
