Peer Mentors

Peer Mentors are an integral part of the WTC. Their contributions are beneficial to both WTC students and Winthrop University. WTC Peer Mentors work under the guidance of the WTC Professional Staff to provide support in the classroom, on-campus, in the commmunity, and employment settings. They share their knowledge, life experiences, and interpersonal skills to enhance WTC's students' experience at Winthrop.
