What is a Peer Mentor?
A peer mentor is a guide, coach, role model, advocate, and friend who is there to help you grow professionally and personally by sharing knowledge, resources, and experiences.
The CUNY BA Peer Mentor Program was established in 2019 to foster greater community involvement in CUNY BA and better prepare CUNY BA students for success, both in the program and beyond.
The Peer Mentor’s Role
Peer mentors supplement the guidance that students receive from their academic advisor and faculty mentor, and help their mentees successfully navigate the program. Mentor responsibilities can include, but are not limited to, helping mentees:
– Establish and maintain a productive relationship with a faculty mentor.
– Design or refine their academic plans for specific Area(s) of Concentration.
– Anticipate and navigate administrative issues, such as course registration.
– Find and participate in relevant professional and personal development opportunities.
– Succeed in their classes and enhance academic growth.
– Gain a strong source of personal and social support throughout the semester.
The Peer Mentee’s Role
Mentorship is a two-way street, and mentees invest in the relationship just as much as mentors. As such, mentees are called to:
– Be open and communicative with mentors about specific needs, goals, and challenges.
– Reach out to mentors with questions or concerns that arise throughout the semester.
– Make the most out of the partnership by respecting mentors’ time and energy.
