Peer Mentoring Program

The College of Science and Engineering recruits students from each discipline to serve as an additional resource of support and guidance for students navigating through college. Peer Mentors will provide a connection with prospective, first-year, returning, transferring, and underrepresented students in their transition to the TCU community by providing resources to increase their success and engagement with the University. Peer mentors possess good communication skills, a positive outlook, patience, and the ability to work independently. Mentors are provided with training to prepare them to be a credible resource for mentees regarding general college information and support services. Mentors direct students to the appropriate services such as advising in proactive rather than reactive ways. Most importantly, mentors are friendly faces for students so they begin to develop a sense of belonging in the College of Science and Engineering.
