Title: Perennial Campus Powerhouse: Maintaining Excellence Through Transition in Your Peer Mentor Program
Lead Presenter: Maggie Gilchrest
Date: October 07, 2021    Time: 9:15 am - 10:15 am
Room: 233, DECC
Abstract: The great sports programs are always able to maintain excellence, even after losing top talent each year. How are these programs: Clemson football, Duke men's basketball, UConn women's basketball, able to remain powerhouse programs while continually losing top talent, and what does it look like to use the same mentality for a peer mentor program? This presentation will introduce the concept of creating a 'powerhouse' peer mentoring program that reloads, rather than rebuilds, and continues maintaining its level of excellence after every change in student personnel. When your peer program is predominately responsible for a 90% FTIC rate in a pandemic, you know that excellence never graduates. Join us as we discuss strategies and themes on developing and sustaining the most impactful peers on campus.
