Staff Council has implemented a Peer Mentoring program for new staff members. The goal of this program is to offer all new staff members the opportunity to meet regularly, for up to one year, with an experienced staff member on campus to assist in the new employee’s transition and acclimation to the University.
A peer mentor will not replace the on-the-job training that the employee’s supervisor provides. Rather, the peer mentor provides information about the University culture, benefits that are not readily known (including free entry to IWU athletic events and Blue Moon Coffeehouse, reduced fees for children’s summer athletic camps, etc.), and whom to contact on campus for varied services that may be related to their experience on campus (i.e. who to contact for payroll information, to have a picture hung on your office wall, etc.).
