Peer Mentorship Program


Mentors: Academic & Personal Success (MAPS)

The MAPS Peer Mentorship Program provides peer-to-peer mentorship experiences for first-year students at Mount Royal University. Recognizing the importance of supporting students as they transition into university, this program empowers both the mentor and mentee to establish relationships and hone their academic skills through education, culture, community and wellness. The MAPS program is committed to supporting student success. 


Work with a Peer Mentor 

  • Connect with an experienced MRU student in your program
  • Develop strategies to successfully transition into MRU
  • Understand the supports and services available for personal and academic success
  • Increase feelings of connectedness and belonging within the MRU community

We are currently accepting Expressions of Interest for first year students arriving at MRU for the Fall 2018 semester.

What does it mean to "express your interest"? It's a way for you to tell us that you would like to learn more about how the program works, learn why you should sign up to work with a mentor, and learn how to officially sign up to work with a peer mentor.

Check out the video below to hear about the value of working with a peer mentor:
