Peer mentor programs provide unparalleled opportunities for campuses to involve a large proportion of students directly in leadership positions and save costs in the process. Empowering students to advise and mentor their peers can reduce staff workload and allow those resources to be leveraged elsewhere on campus. Join us to learn how Longwood University's program utilizes a skeletal staff and a team of peer mentors to engage first-year students in both curricular and co-curricular programs.


Student affairs professionals responsible for orientation, the first-year student experience, or student leadership programs, as well as academic leaders involved in first-year student seminars, will benefit from this content.
