Staff Council has implemented a peer mentoring program for new staff members called
"Campus Connect". 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,
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.).
