PEACE Keeper - Mentors
PEACE Keepers are social justice peer mentors and leaders who are committed to fostering a positive, equitable and inclusive campus environment. As ambassadors of the PEACE Program and the Intercultural Center, PEACE Keepers serve as role models to their mentees, as well as to the student body at-large.
What do PEACE Keepers do?
Having gone through their first year at Roger, PEACE Keepers know exactly what it’s like to be a freshman. PEACE Keepers serve as resources to help their mentees with college adjustment, learn about the wealth of resources on campus, and provide guidance, support and advocacy.
As social justice leaders, PEACE Keepers also help foster their mentee’s learning and growth in the areas of identity, diversity, equity and inclusion. This is achieved through one-on-one mentoring, engaging mentees in campus events, facilitating group seminars, and assisting mentees with their social justice group projects.
PEACE Keepers understand that learning is a life-long process. They engage in professional development and actively and continually build upon their knowledge, awareness and skills.
