Academic Peer Mentoring

Prepare for Success

Academic Peer Mentoring equips residential undergraduate Liberty University students to succeed in their college careers through encouraging, educational, and empowering relationships with trained and invested Peer Mentors.

Through a series of at least three one-on-one meetings per semester, an Academic Peer Mentor can help you in the following areas:

  • Setting customized and achievable goals
  • Time management and organization
  • College reading, study, and test-taking skills
  • Coping with procrastination and stress
  • Connecting with resources around campus
  • Building positive habits for university life

Each Peer Mentor is a junior, senior, or graduate student who has proven his ability to succeed academically at Liberty University and been trained to serve fellow students. Academic Peer Mentors do not provide tutoring, writing services, academic advising, career guidance, or counseling.
