What is the Peer Mentor Program?

The Peer Mentor Program connects students registered with Accessibility Services with successful upper-year students based on their academic background and extra-curricular interests. By providing support and guidance, mentors help mentees with their transition to the University's academic and social environment. Mentees meet individually with mentors once a week and participate in various activities throughout the year.

The program runs from September 2019 through April 2020.
