Mentors are featured on Peer2Peer Profile Posters in Enji giigdoyang.  Look for peers wearing name tags in Enji giigdoyang. 

Do you see a fellow student wearing a name tag who is also featured on a Peer2Peer mentor profile poster? They are a Peer2Peer Student Mentor! Mentors are in the Office of Indigenous Initiatives (OII) student lounge to support their peers in the following ways:

  • Answer questions about OII student services, the university, and help find answers to questions
  • Have a tea or coffee break
  • Attend university and community events with peers

Peer2Peer for Students

Peer2Peer mentorship supports students meeting new people, asking questions, becoming better acquainted in the OII student lounge, and being introduced to additional resources. It also creates paths for students to become more involved in the community.

Peer2Peer Student Mentors

Mentors are upper year Indigenous Nipissing University student volunteers who contribute to making our OII student lounge a welcoming space for all. Free training is provided for all mentors, as well as cultural and staff support.

  • ​Spend time each week in the Office of Indigenous Initiatives student lounge
  • ​Have coffee or tea breaks with a peer (Tim Horton’s coffee cards provided)
  • Attend on-campus events with a peer
  • Attend off-campus community events with a peer (transportation provided)
