Peer influence

The university needs to spend more time developing and coordinating peer mentoring programs, especially at the undergraduate level, says Shuhan He, a senior majoring in zoology.

“Peers are a great resource,” He told the group of about 60 people who turned out for the fourth campuswide brainstorming session. “I want the university to understand how important peers are in the educational process. Students should have the opportunity to receive teaching from peers and to teach themselves.”

He told the group that although such programs exist on campus, they are fragmented and could benefit from a coordinated approach. He said more reliance on peer mentors could increase the university’s efficiency.
