Peer Mentoring at HCC In partnership with the HCC Society of Eagle Mentors

What is a Peer Mentor?

Peer mentors are student leaders that serve as positive role models, working closely with first-year students in and outside of the classroom to help them achieve success at HCC.  Peer mentors are experienced students that serve as a resource, a helping hand, a sounding board, and a referral service.  The Office of Success and Completion collaborates with HCC instructional areas to provide support through peer mentoring to students inside the classroom.  Peer mentors are also available to assist students in the college Learning Centers across the system.
