TRiO Student Support Services

Peer Mentorship Program


The Peer Mentorship Program is designed to provide a supportive one-on-one relationship between a TRiO mentee and a TRiO mentor who provides empathy, encouragement, and empowerment to successfully achieve academic and personal goals. Peer mentoring promotes retention, encourages academic success, and fosters a sense of belonging to the campus community.
