Student Support

Peer Mentor Program

 

Mission

The mission of the STEM Peer Mentor Program is to promote student success through collaborative involvement with fellow students and the STEM/SRI program team. With the encouragement and support of peer mentors, current STEM students will increase their engagement with colleagues and campus resources while gaining a clearer understanding of their learning needs.

How to Meet with a Peer Mentor:

Students in the STEM/SRI Program are required to meet with a Peer Mentor twice each semester (Fall and Spring). Meetings with Mentors can be accessed via ZOOM either through one-on-one sessions and/or by attending a mentor-led 30-minute workshop.

If you have any questions or require more information, contact the STEM office at stem@smc.edu.
