Peer Mentor Program

NOTE: To support efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, we are currently operating virtually. It is never too late to connect with a Peer Mentor and you can request one under "Get a Mentor". You may continue to email your Peer Mentor or mentors@weber.edu with any questions. 

OUR MISSION

To provide peer to peer mentoring, involvement and reflection to develop self-advocacy in navigating campus resources, connecting to peers and WSU and preparing to graduate successfully.

OUR VISION

Students are empowered to be self-sufficient and interdependent learners to achieve personal, academic and professional success.

 

An Image of the Peer Mentor Group

Through one-on-one and small group mentoring, participants will learn about important topics like campus resources, goal setting, time management, talking to faculty, and their own personal, academic, leadership and identity development.
