Peer Mentor Program

The Academic Success Center (ASC) Peer Mentor Program pairs first-year students with a more experienced undergraduate peer who can help students navigate university life. Peer mentors are “academic buddies” who support their peers in a variety of ways, while connecting them to the appropriate and necessary campus resources. Peer mentors have shown notable leadership and citizenship qualities and have the ability to serve as role models. ASC Peer Mentors work specifically with first-year exploring majors and major pathways students. Each semester, mentors participate in outreach initiatives and ASC peer mentoring events, and develop a cohort of mentees with whom they work closely.

For questions regarding the ASC Peer Mentor Program, please contact Cheyenne Rogers at cheyenne.rogers@unlv.edu or 702-895-0682.

In addition to the ASC Peer Mentor Program, the ASC's Hixson-Led Success Scholars Program offers peer leadership for most currently enrolled COLA 100E students.
