Ag Peer Mentoring Program

The College of Ag Peer Mentors serve to enhance the academic advising services and professional development of undergraduate students in the College of Agriculture. Mentor responsibilities include supplementing academic advising services, increasing awareness of and participation in career developments activities, and providing targeted workshops for students to enhance academic performance. Mentors are available to answer questions and provide guidance from a student’s perspective in regards to advising and academic matters, as well insight on high-impact experiences such as internships, study abroad, and undergraduate research. Ag Peer Mentors hold weekly office hours in which current students can schedule meetings to address academic and career exploration questions.
