Peer Support Service

The ACC offers a free mentoring service to IU students led by peer mentors from a variety of academic disciplines. These student peer mentors provide advice, support, attention, and kindness to students who would like some guidance with cultural adjustment, campus life, and schoolwork. These one-on-one meetings may also be an opportunity to practice conversational English and meet new friends. Walk-ins are welcome, and no appointments are needed.

Tutoring will continue through December 11. Please click here for the complete tutoring schedule.
