Mentor Reimbursement Guidelines
Mentor groups receive an $120 stipend to support their group's activities!
Peer Mentor Contracts
Each Peer Mentor is asked to sign a contract that outlines their roles and responsibilities within the program. This is the participation agreement that all peer mentors must sign before participation in the University Mentorship Program.
Peer Mentor Profile Form
This form is used to match groups each summer! Mentors designate their group preferences and background, and we try to match them with their mentees' and faculty/staff mentors' preferences.
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 Group Records
These reports help Mentorship staff support each group and gather program feedback. They allow each peer to reflect about their month with their mentees and faculty/staff mentor, and are due PRIOR to the scheduled peer core meetings the CC arranges each month. The first group records are due to your CC at the end of September, and there are usually no core group meetings due to the workshop in September, where your full core meets with its CC. The next are is due to your CC at your core group meetings that begin in October, and continue through December.
