Those pursuing a degree in education at Indiana State University will learn not only from their professors, but also from their peers.
The Bayh College of Education kicked off its peer mentoring program on Tuesday.
Students will receive guidance from their peers that will help them navigate their first year.
These mentors will also help the students prepare for the tests required for admission into ISU’s teacher education program.
“The older students can talk about the pitfalls and opportunities along the way. They can talk to them about things they should be involved in,” says Janet Buckenmeyer, Dean of the Bayh College of Education.
This is the first year for the peer mentoring program.
