Peer Mentors

Peer Mentors (PMs) are student leaders from a wide range of backgrounds that provide mentorship, encouragement and academic support for freshman students at HPU. PMs aid new students in transitioning to college life, living on Oahu, learning about student leadership and academic opportunities, and much more! In addition, PMs connect with new students weekly to provide peer advisement, resources, and referrals to impact a new student's academic, cultural, social and personal needs.

WHAT DOES A PEER MENTOR DO?

A PM can help answer your questions as someone who has likely experienced things from your perspective. Students who are selected to be PMs are familiar with Oahu and HPU, making them excellent resources when seeking advice on what to do if you need to see a doctor, who to speak to if you have an advising question, as well as local and cultural things like where to get the best Poke Sushi. Creating a connection with your PM helps you begin the sometimes challenging process of expanding your social network and developing relationships.
