Graduate Peer Mentors

Peer mentors serve the Jack N. Averitt College of Graduate Studies as a resource to first year graduate students. Starting graduate school is a new and exciting journey which often presents new challenges.  A student does not need to begin this journey alone. Peer mentors provide support for areas related to a new student’s academic, professional, and personal life.

New students are organized into peer groups led by an experienced Graduate Peer Mentor.

To apply as a peer mentor, students must complete the Graduate Peer Mentor application and submit a letter of support from a faculty member in their program of study. Students who do not have a faculty endorsement will not be considered. Letters should be emailed to Dr. Ashley Walker, Dean of the College of Graduate Studies, awalker@georgiasouthern.edu

The College of Graduate Studies is currently not recruiting peer mentors for fall 2020.
