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.
