4Discoveries Peer Mentor

The 4Discoveries Leader is a dynamic role, that mirrors that of the DU Student Experience. By engaging with and through the 4D model, 4Discoveries Leaders mentor incoming students to create a sense of belonging and community. This is done during Discoveries Orientation week through the establishment of a relationship with their associated FSEM course. Then building on this relationship through continued meetings with the FSEM course, hold one-on-one sessions with the group members and a at First Ascent. In these spaces and conversations, 4Discoveries Leaders will model the roles and responsibilities of DU community members. By doing so, they will begin to empower their first-year student mentees to thrive at and beyond the university, as defined by the 4D Student Experience.
