Pitt Educational Encouragement and Resource Specialists
PEERS Mentoring Program

As Pitt Encouragement and Education Specialists (PEERS), we assist incoming students with their transition into the college lifestyle. By understanding the importance of having good connections in college, we strive to turn the freshman experience and transitions classes into environments favorable to the development of positive social interactions. Throughout the semester, we provide new students with the skills and knowledge necessary to be more successful in their academic, professional and social lives.

PEERS serve students through the Gorilla Gateway course offered to new students at Pittsburg State.

Selection of PEERS is by nomination from Gorilla Gateway instructors and current PEERS followed by an application. Students interested in serving as PEERS should contact their Gorilla Gateway instructor or their mentor.
