Peer Mentoring Program

One of the core components of the Providence Institute is peer mentoring. Every incoming PI student will be assigned a peer mentor at the start of the academic year. Assignments are arranged on a compatibility basis.

Students are required to work with their peer mentor throughout the course of the first  academic year during study hall sessions, group activities, academic workshops and check-in meetings. 

Peer mentors will...

  • Provide immediate, pro-active support for their assigned students
  • Assist with the transition from high school to college
  • Promote academic excellence
  • Encourage the development of positive relationships with students, faculty and staff
  • Offer knowledge about campus services and resources
  • Foster self-confidence so that PI students become more independent 
  • Empower PI students by modeling the study, organizational and personal skills needed for success  
  • Be a consistent and reliable source of structure and motivation
