Peer Mentoring Coordinators work closely with the Faculty and Portfolio of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) to manage key aspects of the program, and ensure that it meets the needs of mentors and mentees. Peer Mentoring Coordinators are involved in shaping the Peer Mentoring program and help build engagement within the Peer Mentoring community.
