An Opportunity For Academic Support From Fellow Students
The Peer Mentor Office is located in Atrium Science 282 F. The office phone number is 732-263-5138.
The School of Science Peer Mentor Program is designed to help students adjust to Monmouth University and to the School of Science by providing support from fellow students. Peer Mentors also serve as role models of good professional development and help organize the professional development programming for students delivered by the School of Science including Career Choices Roundtable. The program is directed by Dean Catherine Duckett and Dr. Nikita Burrows.
Mentors meet with students periodically throughout the semester, both individually and in group activities. Mentors answer questions from their mentees about life at MU and how to get academic assistance and other help on campus. They also assist mentees in developing the critical thinking skills that will enable them to solve their own problems. Biographies of the current Peer Mentors can be found here.
Any first-year student declaring a major in the School of Science may request to be paired with a Peer Mentor. More information on this program will be made available to new students during Orientation activities in July. For further details, please contact the program directors. If you would like to be considered as a peer mentor for the next school year, you may download an application; further details and information are included on the application.
“As a peer mentor, you get to learn how to run events and network, all while setting an example to others as what it is to be a student leader.”
– KALYNA REDA, Peer Mentor
“As a peer mentor, it is our job to make adjusting to college life easier throughout all four years here at Monmouth. Each year has its own challenges, so whether it’s adjusting to living with a roommate for the first time as a freshman or trying to find a summer internship as a junior, students can confide in peer mentors knowing that most of us have just recently dealt with very similar problems and can steer them in the right direction.”
– KELSEY SPARTA, Peer Mentor Coordinator
