ACCESS Peer Mentors

We are no longer hiring ACCESS Peer Mentors for the 2018-2019 Academic Year! 

Peer mentors are essential to the retention and persistence of students at UNT. They are exceptional upper-class students who serve first year students as they transition into UNT. Peer mentors are evident leaders on campus and in the Denton community.

Peer mentors are coaches, role models, advisors, guides, and referral agents for new UNT students. Peer mentors assist new students in getting acclimated to campus life and understanding the many resources available to them during their collegiate experience at UNT.

The ACCESS Peer Mentor Position is a paid position in the Orientation and Transition Programs Office. In addition to meeting with their mentees one on one, ACCESS Peer Mentors also plan programs and events for students in the program to attend.
