LLC Peer Mentors

Living Learning Communities believes strongly in the importance and value of peer-to-peer education and support. Peer Mentorsalso known as ambassadors, peer educators, peer leaders or a variety of other titlesprovide encouragement, leadership and academic support to incoming living learning community residents that is impactful and lasting.
