Peer Mentor/Student Staff

ACE Peer Mentors play a central role in assisting students and ensuring that they learn valuable academic and life skills. Our peers are a consistent source of encouragement and support for students throughout the semester as they motivate and help students realize their potential. Peer Mentors function as leaders, course and workshop facilitators, and overall positive role models.

Meet the people who make our mission happen.
