Purpose: The College of Science & Technology Student Peer Mentoring program was first developed as a pilot program, funded by a 2012 Title III “Strengthening Institutions” grant from the U.S. Department of Education (http://www.fairmontstate.edu/academics/titleiiigrant).  Our mentoring program focus on the student as a whole which makes it distinct from other tutoring services available on campus.

Overview: College of Science and Technology Student Peer Mentors are assigned to work with faculty and students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) courses.  Our Student Peer Mentors work directly with course instructors and the STEM Learning Coordinator to assist students in mastering course content and developing effective academic skills.  The emphasis is on collaboration; Student Peer Mentors, students and faculty are working to maximize learning.   Peer Mentors are also trained and knowledgeable to assist students with many other issues or questions they may have.  Some of these additional topics may include: scheduling classes, a specific major’s requirements, career options, adjustment to college, life skills development, or accessing other campus resources.

Future Plans: This is an evolving program that makes adjustments based upon the needs of the Science & Technology programs.
