Description. As many programs accept and recruit new graduate students in the early spring, this workshop is scheduled  to meet the needs of programs and students during this important process. In brief, peer mentors can aid in recruitment by contacting and even hosting new students, which establishes a personal connection between current and prospective students that is often influential in matriculation decisions and can be built upon once students arrive at U of L. The workshop will discuss how departments can use recruitment as a catalyst for starting a peer mentoring program, as well as how established peer mentoring programs can better utilize peer mentors in the work of recruitment.  It is targeted at both students and faculty/staff who play a role in graduate student recruitment and programming.  Participants are encouraged to attend the other workshops in our peer mentoring series, and to learn from and contribute to our growing body of mentoring knowledge at the MentorCenter.

 

 

Learning Outcomes. As a result of this session, participants will:
  • Understand the specific benefits a peer mentoring program can provide for a department, especially during the recruitment process 
  • Consider the status of their own departmental peer mentoring programs and how they can be enhanced
  • Develop an action plan for using peer mentoring program for recruitment efforts, building on the resources provided in this workshop

Presenters. Amy Lueck and Dr. Michelle Rodems
