About the Programs
Nobody knows the UofL experience better than our current students, and that's a big reason why peer mentor programs are so important. Mentors can help first-year students negotiate college transitions, form campus connections and help facilitate student success. As a mentor, you’ll share your lessons learned and tricks of the trade, and you’ll offer your valuable insights about the inevitable academic and personal challenges new students often encounter.
Mentoring isn’t only beneficial for UofL’s new students. As a mentor, you’ll gain valuable experience, too.
• Leadership development
• Networking opportunities
• Campus knowledge and connections
• Improved organizational and communication skills
There are a variety of peer mentoring opportunities to consider. It’s possible to apply and work for more than one, depending on the program and application requirements. Be sure to review all programs to see which are the best fit for you. If you have questions about the specific programs, reach out to the program contact listed with the specific job posting of interest.
