The Mission of the Peer Support Program is to increase the success and retention rates of first-year Columbia College Chicago students. The program connects first-year students with upper-class peer mentors. Peer mentors coordinate opportunities for students to become acclimated to the campus and Chicago area, as well as to develop their personal, academic, social and cultural experiences through programming and guidance.

Peer Support Mentors are available to meet and offer support directly from your peers about campus resources, classroom help, Chicago resources, and advice on all it takes to be a student at Columbia.
