Undergraduate Peer Mentors are experienced Walden students who offer support and guidance to incoming undergraduate students (mentees). 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 Café message from your peer mentor.
Peer mentors send weekly emails with helpful tips and motivational advice. If you reach out to your peer mentor with a question, you can expect a response within 24 hours.
In addition to email communication, peer mentors offer:
Personalized encouragement and advice through one-on-one meetings
Live webinars to promote academic success skills, such as time management, reading strategies, and overcoming anxiety
Opportunities to build connections with classmates through virtual group gatherings
Finally, though we hope you make a connection, 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’d like.
