Accessibility Peer Mentor Program

What is the Peer Mentor Program?

The Peer Mentor Program connects students registered with Accessibility Services with successful upper-year student mentors.  Mentees will have the opportunity to participate in weekly group activities facilitated by our peer mentors (e.g. academic skills workshops, campus tours, board game cafes, etc.) and meet with a mentor for confidential, one-on-one sessions to support your transition to the university's academic and social environment.  

The program runs from September 2019 through April 2020.
