Welcome to the Peer Advisors and Mentors blog!
Peer Advisors and Mentors Program
The Peer Advisors and Mentors (PAM) program offers a collaborative learning experience that assists with the retention of students through mentoring and leadership.
PAM is designed to assist in enhancing the leadership skills of first-year mentees. This is accomplished through pairing mentees with upper-class mentors, providing funds to help students attend a National Student Leadership Conference or other related conferences, and engaging them in other leadership-related activities.
Through a variety of programs and leadership opportunities, the PAM program implements opportunities where first-year mentees forge bonds with their mentors to enhance their adjustments, leadership skills, overall retention at the University, as well as satisfaction with the collegiate experience.
All in all, mentees find great satisfaction from the development of their academic, leadership, and personal skills. Many mentees as well as mentors have left with a greater sense of their roles and responsibilities as leaders and transform that awareness into an eagerness to act for the benefit of others.
The selection of first-year mentees and upper-class mentors is a competitive process. If you are interested in participating in PAM, you are encouraged to apply as a Mentor or Mentee (first year students).
