Seven Generations Center of Excellence in Native Behavioral Health Peer Mentoring

Peer mentoring is an opportunity for students new to UND and interested in behavioral health programs at UND to learn from students more advanced in their program of study. Peer mentoring can provide academic support from a student who was, not so long ago, in a new students place. It also assists these students new to UND to learn about the University and the Grand Forks community to make an easier transition to student life.
