How can staff and faculty benefit from the Peer Mentor Program? 


Faculty and staff may benefit from the Peer Mentor Program in various ways:

Further support student(s) of concern

If you are concerned about a student who is new to UBC, let us know! We are happy to follow up and partner with the right department on campus in order to further support them.

Feedback for classes, labs, programming

Peer Mentors are highly motivated and trained student leaders who's role allow them to learn from their peers (upper years) and their mentees (mostly first and second year). If you would like to hear their feedback or opinion to inform your practices, let us know!

Event and program support

Peer Mentors may be willing to support you with your special events or programs during the year.

Information dissemination and promotion

Peer Mentors share accurate and timely information with their mentees every week! You may request that they add information about your program, event, or department.

Similarly, Peer Mentors may request your support to promote their own initiatives and to better support their mentees. We look forward to working together with you to provide a better experience for the entire campus community.
