Mentor-Mentee Interaction

Undergraduate Peer Mentors are experienced Walden students who offer support and guidance to incoming undergraduate students.

A peer mentor's goal is to ensure that all mentees successfully acclimate to academic life at Walden and smoothly transition from their first-term course into higher-level coursework. To that end, peer mentors are eager to share knowledge, experiences, and helpful resources with mentees during their first quarter at Walden.

Currently, peer mentors support students enrolled in Personal and Organizational Leadership (LDRS 1001). If this is you, keep an eye out for an introduction email or Class Cafe message from your peer mentor.

Our Undergraduate Peer Mentor Program is meant to support you throughout your academic journey at Walden University. Watch the video above to learn more about the Undergraduate Peer Mentor Program.

Connecting with a Mentor

In addition to email communication, peer mentors offer:

  • Personalized encouragement and advice through one-on-one meetings
  • Live events to promote academic success skills, such as time management, reading strategies, and overcoming anxiety
  • Opportunities to build connections with classmates through virtual group gatherings

Mentor-Mentee Interaction

We understand that each student’s needs are different and that no mentor-mentee relationship is exactly alike. You are welcome to interact with your peer mentor as often or as little as you would like. Even if mentees don’t actively engage with a peer mentor, they frequently report that their mentor’s weekly emails provided them with useful information, strategies, and resources

My peer mentor’s support, direction, and help ultimately kept me enrolled at Walden when I doubted myself and wanted to withdraw.

With her help I went from failing my first course midway through to receiving a ‘B’. Awesome support!
