LOOP Peer Mentoring Program
History: The LOOP Peer Mentoring Program was founded by students of color to retain first and second year students of color. Now formalized as a student service housed within the Office for Multicultural Learning, LOOP provides a structured peer mentorship program to ensure students receive the necessary guidance and access to resources to succeed academically, personally, and professionally.
Mission: Our mission is to create a network of students helping students and to build an on-campus organization where one feels accepted and “in the loop” about information necessary to be successful at SCU.
The goals of LOOP are:
1) To provide a safe space via a mentor-mentee relationship for students to ask
questions/discuss emotional, personal, psychological, and academic issues;
2) To foster community across common differences of identity;
3) To foster a strong sense of belonging;
4) To publicize/spread awareness of campus resources and opportunities and promote utilization of those resources.
5) To increase retention of first- and second-year students of color, first generation students, and pell grant eligible students
