What is the Peer Mentor Program?

The Peer Mentor Program connects students registered with UTM's Accessibility Services with successful upper-year student mentors.  You will have the opportunity to participate in weekly group activities facilitated by our peer mentors (e.g. academic skills workshops, 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.  

Mentor events will be scheduled from September to December (2020 Fall semester) and January to April (2021 Winter semester).  All events scheduled in the Fall semester, will be offered online.
