Academic Peer Mentoring

An Academic Peer Mentor meets with a student.

Prepare for Success

Academic Peer Mentoring helps Liberty University residential undergraduate students build essential skills for college success. Connect with a trained peer for support and encouragement in your academic journey.

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 or her ability to succeed academically at Liberty University and is trained to serve fellow students. Academic Peer Mentors do not provide tutoring, writing coaching, academic advising, career guidance, or counseling.
