This article is an analysis of peer mentors, their interaction with students and instructors, the relationships that develop, and understanding the role of peer mentors in and out of the classroom. The mentor program was created in 1990 at a large public university in the western United States as a mentor leadership program under the premise of students helping students. In this study, the authors found that peer mentors identify with five roles of a peer mentor: connecting link, peer leader, learning coach, student advocate, and trusted friend. The authors conclude that two components were found in this study that offer avenues for future research. First, the amount of time in the program can affect responses. Second, gender makes a difference.
