Peer Mentoring Program

The Peer Mentoring Program is a yearlong program. Each mentor will be assigned to help first-year students of the program in exploring and succeeding in the fields of STEM and Health Sciences. The peer mentor is a student staff member who provides leadership for participants in the TRIO Classic and the TRIO STEM-Health Sciences Program. Mentors assist in achieving the program goal of supporting first-generation and low-income students who are pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and health science. In addition, the program’s primary goal is graduating all students who participate in the program. .

First-year students will be assigned a Peer Mentor.

How Your Peer Mentor can help YOU!

  • Advising help (scheduling classes)
