Dear CEC Students,
As you may know, the College has been investing to enhance and expand academic support systems. We have staffed up the Student Services and Student Success offices, and have added advisors. But a proven element contributing to student success is peer mentoring. There is no substitute for creating a connection between incoming students and those of you who are already “veterans” of CEC. The connection to a peer, who has just experienced what an incoming student is about to experience, is much more effective than the connection to somebody like me who is now over 35 years removed from his/her undergraduate days. I am excited to announce that the College of Engineering and Computing is launching a Peer Mentorship Program. We have staff and infrastructure to establish and support connections between incoming students and peer mentors.
