Mission Statement

The Psychology MORE Program aims to promote student empowerment through peer mentorship, guidance, and education.

What is a mentor?

A mentor is a trusted counselor and guide.  They provide guidance in an relatable and respectful manner to promote the success of others.  Their ultimate goal is to share common experiences and act as role models for future endeavors.

Why is peer mentoring important?

Peer mentors are individuals that have recently traveled in your shoes.  They are on the path to success but still remember the days when they were intimidated and needed help.  They are knowledgeable and experienced peers that can relate and pass on the wisdom they have gained in their academic ventures.  

What can a peer mentor do for me?

  • Share personal experiences and valuable knowledge 
  • Introduce students to research/career options
  • Provide access to resources
  • Act as allies and advocates for success
  • Listen to needs and concerns
  • Provide a link to the four-year university system

*It is important to note that peer mentors can not provide any form of academic advising with issues such as, schedule planning, reviewing graduation requirements, etc. 

**For advice on academics at SDSU please see Peer Advising on the Psy@SDSU page.
