Peer Mentoring Pathways Program Receives REBLS Seed Grant

Peer Mentoring Pathways Program will be established in Computer Science / Engineering departments at three pairs of Massachusetts community colleges and University of Massachusetts campuses, which have consistent pathways of students transferring from the community college to the partner UMass campus. Students who have successfully transitioned to four-year institutions will act as near-peer mentors. They will support new transfer students at their four-year institutions and visit their 2-year alma maters to reach out to students who are considering transferring to their UMass campus. The Center for Student Success Research, via doc student Gabriel Reif, will serve as the evaluator on the project.
