Peer mentors are senior undergraduate students who offer guidance, support, and mentorship to fellow students in a course they have previously taken. Peer mentors apply for the opportunity to mentor students, and do so under the guidance of the course’s instructor. Simultaneously students attend a credit-course seminar to learn and discuss collaborative learning, pedagogy, and mentorship methods in higher education. This position prepares students for potential graduate teaching assistant roles and/or professional mentoring roles.
