RECENT PROJECTS

PEER MENTORING PROGRAM CONSULTANT
TRiO Program and Pathways Program

MADAILLE COLLEGE • Buffalo, New York
November 2017 - September 2018

Consultant services were divided into two distinct areas. On a general level, the services focused on "training the trainers" from multiple Medaille College peer mentoring programs. A series of workshops during a January 2018 site visit emphasized identifying college adjustment issues students faced, which issues were appropriate to address with peer mentoring, introducing the expertise-development peer mentoring model, and what constitutes appropriate evaluation.

On a more specific level, additional services for the TRiO program included connecting student adjustment issues to campus resources and success strategies, developing student support materials, revising the existing training curriculum, and refining the program's evaluation plan. During a second site visit in August 2018, the consultant conducted peer mentor training for both the TRiO and Pathways programs.

Special issue: Student Peer Mentoring
Vol. 28, No. 3 (2017)

(From introduction)
While a 21st century education provides exceptional benefits, it can also present challenges. An increasingly diverse student population coming from complex societies coupled with tightening of resources leave universities from across the country asking, “How can we better meet the needs of our students?” Peer mentoring is a remedy for schools lacking sufficient external resources to support student bodies that are increasingly diverse and complex in educational needs.
