Pace Resources For First Generation Students
Pace University’s First-Generation Mentorship program allows incoming students to be connected with a current student. The Peer Mentors are successful first generation students whose experience provides valuable advice from a peer perspective. Throughout the semester, they monitor student progress and need. Their mentorship aids the development of academic success and self-advocacy.
