Mentoring is an important process in the development and growth of an individual. The relationship between a person with expert knowledge in an area and a person who wants to learn from an expert is defined as mentoring (Moore et al., 2007).
Peer Mentoring Defined
Mentoring is a one-on-one relationship between an experienced student (mentor) and a new student (mentee).
The Peer Mentoring Program (PMP) pilot comes from the premise that students are connected with a Mentor and will feel less isolated, thus enhancing academic and social success in their academic setting. Mentees will become familiar with campus resources, resulting in better academic performance and improving their likelihood of matriculation from entrance to graduation/transferability.
