Peer Mentoring Collaborative Program
Triton College’s Peer Mentoring Collaborative (PMC) is a classroom-based peer mentoring program that embeds peer mentors into the classroom at faculty’s request. PMC merges academic support with traditional peer mentoring to provide students with the best opportunity for success. Peer mentors attend and participate in class sessions, hosting weekly office hours to tutor students on course content, facilitate class study sessions and are available to meet with students one on one. PMC has demonstrated benefits for course success metrics, development of student’s soft skills and offers professional development for its peer mentors.
Peer mentors are active, degree/certificate seeking Triton students who have earned an “A” grade in the class that they have been assigned to. They offer in class academic support and ongoing mentoring outside of the class through facilitating study groups, holding office hours and meeting with students one on one.
PMC’s peer mentors are active, degree/certificate seeking Triton students who have earned an “A” grade in the class that they have been assigned to. They have a 2.8gpa or better and have completed at least 12 college credit hours. Our peer mentors are typically recommended to the program by Triton faculty.
