The Department of Multicultural Student Affairs works to promote the pursuit of academic success, retention, and graduation of students, with an emphasis on African American, Native America and Hispanic/Latino students. The Department of Multicultural Student Affairs is proud to be home to the Peer Mentor Program.
“Students Helping Students”
The purpose of the Peer Mentor Program is to aid in the academic, emotional, and socio-cultural adjustment of mentees to college life at North Carolina State University. The peer mentoring relationship is designed to foster a network of support for culturally diverse first year students (mentees). Peer Mentors serve as peer support personnel for mentees and share program goals and responsibilities aimed at ensuring the retention of student participants.
“My mentor was so welcoming, she really helped me transition to life at NC State. My mentor made sure to reach out to me and helped me become involved in the campus community.” – NCSU Freshmen ’18
