Peer Mentoring

Peer mentors serve as part of a support system for students navigating college. In identified STEM courses, peer mentors act as role models for students.  They provide encouragement to students in various course activities to bolster learning and course completion of their fellow students in the courses.  The anticipated outcome is promotion of success of students who may feel lost, have difficulty navigating college or are struggling in some courses. LSAMP scholars who are interested in serving as mentors will be assigned a mentee and will be expected to commit 3 hours a week with the mentee.  Incoming URM students are eligible for mentoring opportunities as mentees. If you are interested in being a mentor or a mentee contact the campus coordinator at
