Mission Statement:

Because we believe in the power of positive peer influence and cultivating a legacy of excellence, we work to:

  • build community
  • provide awareness and exposure to resources
  • bridge the gaps between home and college experiences
  • create an environment where students feel supported, and
  • foster holistic student development.

And we do all of this with enthusiasm and dedication.


The Center for Student Success & Academic Counseling supports three separate peer mentoring programs: the Minority Advisory Program, Carolina Covenant Peer Mentoring, and C-STEP Peer Mentoring. Each one is designed to give specialized attention to a specific population of students. All three programs focus on ensuring that the transition into the Carolina family is seamless and fun through special events and individualized attention.
