Recent research on peer mentor, peer advisor, and resident advisor programs confirms these programs positively impact the mentors' student development while increasing retention and academic performance. However, many campuses do not achieve the greatest possible impact with their programs.

Join us online to learn about the University of South Carolina's recent study on the needs of peer mentors and advisors. Our instructor will share the study findings and talk about three key gaps they revealed. Then he and the panelists will highlight case studies from a variety of institutions that show how you can fill these three gaps in ways that can lead to higher satisfaction and greater retention among the peer mentors on your campus.


This webcast is ideal for anyone responsible for peer mentor programs, resident advisor programs, student leadership programs, student unions, and student activities, and those who work with peer mentors in orientation and first-year experience programs.
