Queer Peers Mentor Program: Mentor Application
The Queer Peers Mentoring Program is an innovative program that we are excited to bring back to Oakland University. The mission of the program is to promote connections and positive identities by providing support and empowerment one student at a time. It matches new OU students who identify as LGBTIQA with LGBTIQA juniors and seniors. Through one-to-one peer mentoring, new LGBTIQA students have the opportunity to gain support, confidence, acceptance and guidance as they begin their academic careers at OU. With this unique avenue of support, students will gain confidence in themselves and comfort in their new surroundings. In a safe environment that values diversity and inclusion, students can focus their energy and time toward their academic and personal growth.
