The First-Year Seminar Peer Mentor Program is an academic leadership opportunity for upper-class students to serve as a mentor to new students in a first-year seminar classroom, including TIDES & Honors Colloquium. Peer Mentors play a crucial role in helping our newest students transition to the academic and social communities of Tulane. Starting from the very first class meeting during New Student Orientation and continuing through the full semester, Peer Mentors lay a foundation of support for first-year students by modeling a collaborative and inclusive academic culture, delivering content on academic success and Tulane campus culture, and helping students connect with different campus resources and opportunities for academic exploration.
The full job description is included below and details the full requirements. Peer Mentors serve for the full semester and are student employees of Newcomb-Tulane College.
All interested students should apply via the 2021 Wave Leader and Peer Mentor common application located on the New Student & Leadership Programs WaveSync Portal. The application opens on February 1, 2021 and closes on Sunday, February 28, 2021.
If you are interested in serving in the dual Wave Leader/Peer Mentor role, you will be asked to answer additional questions on your application. More information on the Wave Leader position and application timeline can be found by visiting the New Student and Leadership Programs WaveSync portal.
