SOS Peer Mentoring

Students Obtaining Success (SOS) is a peer-based mentoring program for undergraduate students experiencing academic difficulties or on academic probation. SOS is a semester-long program and is individually tailored to help students identify their unique challenges, improve academic performance, and return to good academic standing. SOS empowers students to identify strengths and challenges, develop academic and personal success strategies, and connect with appropriate campus resources.

Program Details

Participants will identify strengths and sources of academic difficulty. Each participant is assigned an undergraduate student peer mentor for weekly support and guidance. The program lasts for one semester and is individually designed to help students address their unique needs and issues. Participants are expected to meet 1 hour each week with a peer mentor throughout the semester and contribute to creating and following a personal Action Plan to support their return to good academic standing. Participation in SOS is voluntary and FREE!
