Peer Mentor Page
Overview of Peer Mentor Program:
The Native American-serving Nontribal Institutions (NASNTI) program operated by the U.S. Department of Education provides grants to eligible institutions of higher education to enable them to improve their academic quality, increase their self sufficiency and strengthen their capacity to serve students.
The NASNTI Transfer Transition Program is geared at welcoming, enhancing, and supporting all transfer transition students from diverse backgrounds. Through our Peer Mentor Program, transfer students will have the opportunity to work with experienced students at UNCP to have a better grasp and ease of transitioning into the university. Special emphasis will be placed on academic advising, tutoring and building a sense of community among this student population.
Peer Mentor Purpose:
The peer mentoring relationship is designed to foster a network of support for transfer students, particularly our Native American population. Mentors serve as peer support personnel for these transfer students (Mentees) and share program goals and responsibilities aimed at ensuring the retention of these particular student groups.
To aid in the academic, emotional and socio-cultural adjustment for transfer students for college life at UNCP.
