Good morning, Tadiyos,

Please see my answers to your questions. Best of luck with your program!


  *   Are your peer mentors paid or are they volunteers? Our PMs are paid.
  *   If paid, how are they paid (hourly, scholarship, stipend, etc.)? They are paid hourly.
  *   What population of students get a peer mentor (1st year students, students in a specific program, etc.)? Our PMs are assigned to our FYE 101 classes.
  *   What is the mentee-mentor ratio? Last 3 year average: 1:25
  *   What is your criteria for selecting peer mentors? At least a 3.0 GPA and a faculty recommendation
  *   Did you assess the outcomes of the program (such as: increase in retention and/or persistence, students' sense of belonging, academic success, etc.)? Yes, we do these assessments each year for our annual report.
  *   What adjustments did you make in response to the pandemic? Everything is online through Zoom, the SIS, and email.


Thanks, Debbie
