Peer Mentoring Program

This 2022-23 academic year, a team led by Dan Baker and Shannon Miller is piloting a first- to third-year peer-mentoring program in the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering. The mentoring program directly supports the college’s Strategic Plan Implementation Plan Tactic 2d

Given the short launch window, the pilot program will be implemented in Civil & Environmental Engineering (CEE) this year, with the hope that the peer mentoring program can be expanded college-wide in 2023-2024.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at PeerMentor@colostate.edu.
