Navegando Mentoring Program

The Navegando Peer Mentoring Program helps Latinx students succeed by connecting returning students with first-year students. Navegando peer mentoring enriches the educational experience for our students by providing academic support, cultural exploration, and social connections.

  • assisting in the transition to college and helping new students learn about our campus and community by creating a welcoming and informative environment

  • serving as academic and social role models
  • exploring the rich arrays of opportunities at CWI
