Queer Peer Mentors is an 8-week peer-to-peer mentoring program open to first-year CWRU students.
We know that incoming students are 4 times more likely to want to stay at university if peer mentoring is offered. Without peer mentoring, at the end of semester one:
- ⅓ of students feel they haven’t adapted to university-style learning.
- ½ still struggle to manage time and commitments.
- ½ do not establish friend groups.
- Without establishing friend groups, this can lead to poor academic performance and magnifies feelings of loneliness.
