Title: No Student Is an Island: Connect Your Students by Creating a Peer Mentoring Program-Cruising Into a 98% Retention Rate
Lead Presenter: Vanessa Blackmon
Date: On-Demand
Room: On Demand
Abstract: Having trouble reaching your students...literally and figuratively speaking? Create a peer mentoring program so that students can connect with other students as well as provide support for readmission, probation, new students and/or any student that wants to become more involved on campus! This National Award-Winning Peer Outreach Mentoring Program currently holds an 80% average semester success rate with Mentees increasing their institutional cumulative GPA within each semester of participating in the program and a semester average retention rate of 98%. Through a simulated student orientation session, attendees will experience the students' perspective and receive descriptive details on how to build and sustain their own program to fit the needs of their institution.
