Panel: How Peer Mentoring Can Assist Students in Niche Programs or at Niche Institutions

Member Exclusive

At Academic Impressions, we have offered a number of articles and other resources on peer mentoring, and our readers and participants at our events have asked, "Is peer mentoring effective in a niche academic program -- such as nursing or aviation -- or at a niche institution?"

We forwarded this question to a panel of experts on peer mentor programs. This article provides their answers.

Included on the panel:

  • Margie Bader, SMILE program coordinator and professor at Seneca College
  • Bryce Bunting, program administrator and learning specialist for Brigham Young University's college of undergraduate education
  • Wayne Jackson, director of multicultural academic and support services at the University of Central Florida
  • Stacey Wilkerson, interim director of the First Year Experience and Family Programs at Longwood University
