Learning Communities believes strongly in the importance and value of peer-to-peer education and support. Peer Mentors – also known as ambassadors, peer educators, peer leaders, or a variety of other titles – provide encouragement, leadership, and academic support to incoming living learning community residents that is impactful and lasting. Although not required, most peer mentors previously lived in the same living learning community for which they serve now. This familiarity with course(s), instructors, activities and events, and community living has many positives and allows the peer mentor to continue their relationship with the LLC beyond their first year on campus.

The Peer Mentor position currently serves eight of our Living Learning Communities. Please see the specific responsibilities of each below.
