Nick Weise and student peer mentoring team - University-wide

This project addresses the lack of opportunities commuter students have to build social / cultural capital and access to members of the university community who understand their situation. Through the peer mentoring scheme, commuter students transitioning into the University now see learners who are like them before they start and can form supportive peer networks.
