Peer Mentor Learning Community (PMLC)

What is the Peer Mentor Learning Community?

Welcome to the Peer Mentor Learning Community (PMLC) program!  The PMLC program is offered jointly by Accessibility Services and the Robert Gillespie Academic Skills Centre (RGASC) to support student learning and well-being among those registered with Accessibility Services.  Through interactive workshops, social events, and one-on-one mentoring, the PMLC program engages students in building academic skills and fostering connections.


All UTM students who self-identify as having a disability are welcome to attend all PMLC workshops and social events.  One-on-one mentoring is only available for students currently registered with UTM Accessibility Services.

PMLC Initiatives

Interactive Workshops
PMLC workshops are collaborative, activity-based, and hands-on sessions that support students to become active, engaged, and independent learners.  Students will learn essential academic skills such as notetaking, test taking, reading, essay writing, and time management.

Study & Art Café 
The PMLC Study & Art Café is a quiet space for Accessibility students to study independently and connect with their peers.  Students are also welcome to participate in art activities such as painting, drawing, and crafts.  Free snacks for all participants!

One-on-One Mentoring
Confidential sessions between students and mentors, meant to provide guidance on how to navigate university life and meet their personal and academic goals.  One-on-one mentoring is reserved for students currently registered with UTM Accessibility Services.  


Registration for all PMLC events will open in September 2024.  
If you have any questions, please contact Accessibility Services at 905-569-4453, email, or visit us in DV2240.
