The Peer Leader Program is a mentoring program for all students in the class of 2019. This is an exciting step in supporting our new students in their transition to Xavier. The program is coordinated by the Office of Student Involvement with support from the Office of Student Success and Parent/Family Outreach.
Current juniors and seniors serve as Peer Leaders for groups of 6-8 first-year students. Peer Leaders serve as a resource and advocate for the first year students in their group. They connect regularly with their group of first year students and provide feedback and reports to the Office of Student Involvement periodically or as needs arise. They are trained in Title IX response, identifying signs of distress, knowledge of campus offices and departments, and understanding the first year experience.
If you are interested in receiving a list of first year students and their Peer Leader, would like specific information regarding a students’ Peer Leader, or have general questions, please contact Molly Dugan in the Office of Student Involvement at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
