What is the A.C.E Peer Mentor Program?

Dickinson’s A.C.E (Academic and Co-Curricular Excellence) Peer Mentor Program is an engagement, development and support program for select first year students from underrepresented populations who will be paired with a trained upper-class mentor. The goal of A.C.E is to give our mentees another resource and support system on campus. Your mentor will be there to provide more individualized support and guidance. By participating in the A.C.E Peer Mentor Program, first-year mentees/protégés will develop the following:

  • A strong sense of belonging and community. 
  • Skills for organizing their time and studying effectively. 
  • A strong awareness of campus resources.
  • Healthy wellness habits appropriate for their individual needs.
