Mentoring in Residence Program

Mentoring in Residence Program

Peer mentoring in academic skills and support (available in DeLong, Selke, and Woods residence halls)

Through its Mentoring-in-Residence program, DSU seeks to encourage independent and successful learning, foster student engagement in all aspects of healthy university life, and help provide an enjoyable and enriching university experience.  The Mentoring-in-Residence program puts trained peer mentors in campus residence halls. 

Our peer mentors serve as friendly, supportive academic coaches; their job is to help new college students in particular adjust to the academic aspects of university life.  As such, they focus on assisting students with basic skills and strategies such as note-taking, study techniques, test-taking, time management, stress management, and so on.  If you are interested in working with or becoming a peer mentor, contact the Academic Success Center at 483-2999 or email us


Peer mentoring will begin on Tuesday, January 21. 

The mentoring-in-residence schedule is provided below.  Mentoring services are usually provided on a walk-in basis
