What is the Peer Mentor Learning Community?

The Peer Mentor Learning Community (PMLC) 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 UTM's academic and social environment.  

PMLC events will run from September 2020 through to April 2021.  Please note, all events scheduled in the Fall semester will be offered online.
