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.

There are currently 26 Graduate Peer Mentors from various colleges serving our 1st year graduate students on the Statesboro and Armstrong campuses. 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 recruiting a few more peer mentors for spring 2020.   The deadline to apply is December 13.  Please click here to access the application portal.
