MISSION STATEMENT:

Our mission is to help new and returning students become successful college students by assisting them in developing strong skills for life and college success.

PEER MENTORS:

  • Serve as credible resources for mentees regarding general college information and support services

EMCC peer mentors work in a professional and supportive environment housed within the Counseling Division. All peer mentors are supervised by EMCC faculty and are expected to maintain the highest level of professional and personal integrity.
