"Students Helping Students"
Peer support is about connecting with other student(s) - your peers - to support your learning and development. Peer support programs in a university context serve many purposes - from helping students in difficulty to providing information and/or education to inspiring and motivating students to action. At McGill, there are more than 50 programs and initiatives through which students provide various forms of support to other students.
Peer support amongst University students has been shown to be a mutually beneficial experience for all parties:
“Student’s peer group is the single most potent source of influence on growth and development.”
- Alexander Astin
