The Peer Mentoring Program is an integral component of the academic and co-curricular student experience at Guttman Community College. Academic Success Peer Mentors, Admissions & Access Peer Mentors, and Leadership & Service Peer Mentors help ease the transition from high school to college, and coach students through their continued educational career while at Guttman. Reporting to the Associate Director of Mentoring & Student Success, peer mentors are visible, active, and invested in the development of an inclusive, academically-focused community.
Peer Mentors can be found throughout campus, from the Admissions Office to the Information Commons. Their primary responsibilities include giving tours of the College, responding to student questions, and providing focused academic support. Peer Mentors are active participants in the Summer Bridge Program and first-year learning communities, and they plan and facilitate social and educational programs for the entire campus community.
There are five types of Peer Mentors:
Academic Success Peer Mentor: Meet-ups
Academic Success Peer Mentor: Studio
Admissions & Access Peer Mentor
Leadership & Service Peer Mentor
Early College Peer Mentor
After successfully completing their first academic year, students have the opportunity to apply for a Peer Mentor position.
