CSD seeking peer mentors for 2017-2018 academic year
The Center for Student Development is inviting current freshmen, sophomores and juniors to apply for First Year Transitions peer mentor positions for the 2017-2018 academic year. Ideal candidates are students who are seeking to develop and utilize leadership skills in order to assist fellow students.
Having already experienced their first year at Salve Regina, peer mentors have a good understanding of what it’s like to be a student and are aware of available experiences, support services and programs. Peer mentors serve as leaders and resources to students enrolled in the First Year Transitions course and co-teach the course with the instructor.
As part of the program, peer mentors enroll in FYT130: Mentor Practicum during the fall semester. The course provides support and training and assists peer mentors with self-assessment and reflection.
Students may apply for peer mentor positions through the student leadership application, which is available online through noon Thursday, Feb. 16. For more information, contact the Center for Student Development at (401) 341-3288 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
