Peer Mentoring

Founded in 2008, as the first LGBTQIA focused program in the state of Michigan, the Peer Mentoring Program aims to support new students in their transition to college by providing an experienced student mentor. This one-on-one mentoring relationship allows new students to develop academic and leadership skills in addition to providing information on available support services and academic programs.
