Title: Moving from Advising to Mentoring- How Peer Advisors Contribute to Student Success
Lead Presenter: Michelle Henderson
Date: October 08, 2021    Time: 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm
Room: 206, DECC
Abstract: In a time where advisors have more to do with less resources, the need for creative solutions to addressing student needs is essential. The use of Peer Advisors in an academic advising center can help lighten an advising load, provide extra staff support, and offer numerous other benefits to both staff and students. Shifting from strictly peer advising to peer mentoring has made drastic changes in student satisfaction and their sense of belonging at our institution. Throughout this interactive session, participants will discuss strategies for effectively utilizing peer advisors/mentors as key components in student satisfaction, persistence, and overall well-being.
