Pathways Peer Mentors

Peer Mentors

The Peer Mentor program provides personal and academic development and appropriate support services to enable Medaille Pathways students to successfully complete their educational objectives. The program involves the use of upper class students to guide and engage with Pathways students to aid in their success for their first year at Medaille. Peer Mentors are selected for a variety of reasons including academic excellence, involvement on campus, being formerly involved in the Pathways program, and the demonstrated ability to provide mentoring to other students on campus.
