Doctoral Peer Mentors

“My mentor is engaged, responds proactively and provides valuable insight. I appreciate their encouragement as well!”

Doctoral Peer Mentors are experienced Walden students who provide social support to incoming doctoral students in the first few months of their program.

Mentors connect with their mentees via e-mail and Skype to provide advice, insider tips, and guidance for student success and development. The mentor/mentee relationship continues until the mentee attends their first residency or completes three terms, whichever comes first.


You must be in your first or second term of the doctoral program to work with a Peer Mentor


Mentor assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis.

If a Mentor is not available, you will be added to the waitlist and a Mentor will be assigned as soon as possible.
