ACAD 101 Peer Mentor Program

The Peer Mentor program at Winthrop University is an essential component of the ACAD 101 course. Academically strong, well-rounded sophomores, juniors, and seniors are selected to serve as role models and mentors for incoming first-year students. Peer Mentors assist students through their transitional stages at Winthrop and are knowledgeable of ACAD 101 course material, academic/university policies, and campus resources.

By having a Peer Mentor in the ACAD 101 class, students get the assistance of an upperclassman specially trained to offer the student perspective in various course topics and offer guidance throughout their first semester. Peer Mentors meet individually with each student in their ACAD course to discuss, listen to, and respond to both academic and personal issues and concerns. Having a Peer Mentor allows students a one-on-one contact to go to with questions in regard to any component of the first-year experience.
