Peer Mentor Program

The DRS Peer Mentor Program is designed to match newly registered students with disabilities (mentees) with upper class students with disabilities (mentors).

Mentors use their personal experience and knowledge with campus life to provide guidance and resources to mentees.  Mentoring is not academic support. The program intends to create connections between new and experienced students, to personalize the University learning experience and to develop relationships.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor or mentee, DRS requests that you complete an Interest Form below. Interest forms will be available August 2020.

Based on the results, DRS will match mentors and mentees on a rolling basis and send out an introductory email.  DRS will host events throughout the semester for all mentors and mentees to gather.

If you have any questions or require assistance to complete an interest form, please contact DRS at 412-648-7890 or drsrecep@pitt.edu.
