For Peer Mentors

Who Are Peer Mentors?

         - Sophomore or junior level students who take a leadership role in guiding first-time students.

         - Strong proponents in their major and are very active members in the NJIT community.

         - Experienced team builders that aid students in study and time management skills.

         - The link connecting students with tutoring and counseling.

    Peer mentors are typically assigned to about 12 students in a learning community and engage with students online, in select classes, and other group activities. A peer mentor is an important voice of experience and point of contact for communicating questions or concerns.
