Peer Mentors

The Peer Mentor Program assists incoming Honors students to become comfortable within our learning community. Once our volunteer mentors are selected, they go through training before working one on one with their assigned students.

Peer mentors are friendly guides to the Honors Program and assist the newbies in understanding the Honors point system and how to get involved in Honors activities quickly and easily. They assist freshmen in the transition from high school to UIW, showing them the ropes on what it takes to perform well academically. For both transfer and freshman students, peer mentors are a prime resource for how things work on campus and how to find out what's happening at UIW and around town--socially, culturally and intellectually.

Our peer mentors for 2019-2020 are listed below. Click on the mentor's name for the qualifications that makes each person a worthy guide.
