Our Peer Mentors are responsible for providing personal and practical academic support services to assigned first-year and sophomore students who are CHE/SSS program participants. The Peer Mentors play a significant role in assisting students with their academic planning, financial aid, scholarship information, registration,transitioning to campus life, and accessing appropriate campus resources.
Peer mentors meet with the CHE freshmen students six-eight times per semester. Our goal is to establish a life-long relationship with our CHE students within their first year. Once they become sophomore they will be require to meet with their assigned Peer Mentor 2-4 times each semester. The upper class CHE participants, juniors and seniors, are assigned to a CHE academic advisor who they are required to meet 2-4 times each semester.
The CHE Peer Mentors also serve as a student advocate, a significant contact person who contributes to a caring and supportive campus climate to our CHE participants. Our Peer Mentors are also eligible for national certification through the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA).
