The Mentorship staff creates and sends electronic monthly and mid-monthly newsletters to all participants to keep participants updated about our activities, share announcements about campus events of note and relate tips for a successful semester. They're also used to spotlight the myriad student-run organizations and co-curricular involvements of our Communication Coordinators, who are connected to sports, leadership, community service, research and cultural groups--they share relevant information from their everyday campus lives to the incoming class in order to supplement the mentoring experience.
We also publish manuals and various training materials to assist mentors in their role (both peer mentors and faculty/staff), so that all participants are well-informed and prepared. Feel free to review any of the information below!

Mentor's Corner: 2012-2013 Peer Mentor Resources
All peer mentors undergo a 1-day spring training to prepare them for the mentorship experience the upcoming fall. This year Mentorship will use a student success model to encourage targeted discussions with mentees to help them reach their first year goals along with the group records that document progress each month that they give to their assigned staff. Prior to training, all peer mentor applicants are invited to a mass meeting where our staff presents about the role and answers questions. This is a voluntary event recommended for all applicants, and there are two per year before the application deadline.

PEER MENTOR MONTHLY CHECKLISTS
This is a quick checklist Mentors should compelte each month and submit to their CCs. We do this to easily gauge a mentor's accomplishments, although it is not the ONLY way to analyze mentor involvement--many other things happen that we can't put on a form. The Checklist is another way we record MOTY eligibility and give us some insight to provide support and advice.
PEER MENTOR GROUP RECORDS NOW AVAILABLE FOR FALL 2012 (SEPT-DEC 2012)
