Murray, Donell Cochran
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Morehead State University
Peer mentoring is a way to help guide and form valuable relationships between two or more students and plays an important role in the success, both academically and socially, of students. At Morehead State University (MSU), the International Peer Mentoring Program (IPMP) was designed and implemented in the Fall of 2016 to assist in the academic and social integration of international students. Twenty-seven peer mentors were selected based on leadership and organizational skills in connecting twenty-seven peer mentees to the MSU community. Many of the twenty-seven peer mentors described their mentoring as a muti-faceted endeavor in which guidance, friendship and teaching served as a model for the foundation of IPMP. Communication was an important tool in this implementation and ementoring and a face-to-face model were constructed to interface the academic and social integration. Penzu, an online journal allowed the peer mentors and the peer mentees to detail events and captivate while enjoying their experiences. The academic connection enabled peer mentors and peer mentees to join other peer mentors and peer mentees that needed this assistance with academics.
