What is a Peer Mentor?
Peer Mentors serve as a positive role model and a resource for students in their community. During the fall semester, Peer Mentors assist their learning community instructor with the planning and preparation for a one/two-credit LC Seminar Course. It is expected that the Peer Mentor attends each class, teach one lesson during the quarter, and help to facilitate class discussion. Peer Mentors also plan and organize cultural, intellectual, thematic outings and an informal faculty chat that acquaints the students in their community with the resources of Ohio University and Athens.
