Peer Mentoring

"This program helped me improve the skills that I should be applying in the classroom and with researching possible clubs on campus I might be interested in joining." - University of Redlands Student

The goal of our Peer Mentoring Program is to give students an enhanced college experience and provide academic and social support. We strive to help participants establish academic independence and assist with the transition to college life through positive mentor-mentee relationships. The program identifies student needs, provides referrals to available support and services, and facilitates mentor-mentee relationships through regular communication and distribution of useful materials.

You can expect the following from the program and your mentor:

  • Referrals to academic and social resources on campus

  • Enhancement of academic success skills

  • Assistance with class selection, LAF/LAI, majors, etc.

  • Assistance with the academic and social transition to college life

  • Discuss, set, and work towards accomplishing college and life goals

  • Meet consistently with your mentor both one-on-one and in a group setting

  • Maintain professional integrity, privacy, respect, and sensitivity in mentoring

All Peer Mentors are undergraduate University of Redlands students that have a cumulative GPA above a 3.0 and are meaningfully involved in various campus activities. Mentors possess strong communication skills, a positive outlook, patience and the ability to work independently.

If you would like to participate in our Peer Mentoring Program, please schedule an appointment here. For the May Term 2021, all Peer Mentoring meetings will be online. When we return to campus, Academic Success can be found on the ground floor of the Armacost Library in the Student Development Center.
