Academic Peer Mentoring

Academic Coaching

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/her ability to succeed academically at Liberty University and been trained to serve fellow students. However, please note that Academic Peer Mentors do not provide subject-matter tutoring, writing coaching, academic advising, career guidance, or counseling.

If you would like to meet with an Academic Peer Mentor, please follow the instructions below to schedule an appointment. We look forward to working with you! 

  • New Students
