Title: Strategic Peer Mentoring for First Year Student Engagement
Lead Presenter: Alla Hatfield
Date: October 06, 2020    Time: 3:25 pm - 4:10 pm
Room: Semi-Live
Abstract: Creating and maintaining a sustainable and effective peer mentoring program for every first-year student at a large institution might seem like a daunting task. At the Smeal College of Business, with approximately 800 first year students entering every year, there is a 100-member group of volunteer peer mentors who get the job done. It's impossible to engage students on such a large scale without having an effective strategy and structure. Participants in this session will walk away with practical tools for establishing a mentoring system that promotes maximum engagement for every student. The session will address strategies for facilitating mentor-mentee connections, marketing techniques, mentor selection and training, leadership transition process and measuring program outcomes. Empowered by your advising unit, a program like this can thrive!
