UT Tyler Honors Program

Honors Peer Mentoring Program

Peer mentoring allows current Honors students to pass on enthusiasm and advice to their younger peers in the Honors Program. It also helps first-year Honors students experience a smoother transition to college life, the Honors Program and UT Tyler.

Most importantly, the Honors Peer Mentoring Program contributes to the vertical integration of Honors students by allowing students from different classes to connect with one another.

Being an Honors Peer Mentor is an opportunity to serve the Honors Program community, one that cultivates academics, networking, friendship and the life of the mind. Being an Honors Peer Mentor is an excellent resume builder. The Honors Peer Mentoring Program provides students with the opportunity to attend seminars that enhance leadership and communication skills, as well as to increase awareness of others’ sensitivities.

If you are currently an Honors student and are interested in becoming an Honors Peer Mentor, please contact Mr. Muenks, the coordinator of Honors, at pmuenks@uttyler.edu.
