Outreach Program
Peer Mentoring, Life Skills, and Leadership Development Program

The OMSLD Academic Mentoring Coordinator along with a group of student Peer Mentors provide opportunity for students new to the campus to meet in small groups over the academic year. Through small group and individual contact, mentoring will provide students with:

  • accurate information and advice;
  • support and resources to enhance academic performance;
  • a supportive environment to share ideas and different points of view; and,
  • assistance in resolving an issue or problem.

In addition to the small groups, there are numerous opportunities for students to participate in monthly programming to encourage personal, social, cultural, leadership, and professional development. The Life Skills Series provides insight into such topics as personal well-being, diversity, study skills, and financial management. The Professional Development Series will provide students with helpful hints in areas such as resume development, internships, and networking.

Peer Mentors are trained, supported, and supervised through the efforts of the Academic Mentoring Coordinator and through monthly leadership development workshops.
