Peer Mentor Program FOr Students with disabilities

Beginning in August 2018, this volunteer based program eases the transition from high school to college for students with disabilities so that they may become strong students for their first year and beyond.

Who are Peer Mentors? 

Peer mentors are carefully chosen students who maintain a 3.0 GPA, have a record free of conduct violations, and are strong self-advocates who are confident in discussing their own experiences with a disability. Peer Mentors use Moravian College resources and are active members of the Moravian College community. A Peer Mentor's primary role is to assist first-year students in their transition to the College.
