Student Support

Providing support services to students throughout the year is a major operation made possible through collaboration with a variety of offices on campus.  It is our ultimate goal to make sure all students have equitable access to education in a safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment.

    Peer Advisors

    Peer Advisors provide informal advice and guidance about life and learning at MBKU to new students.  New students gain informed student perspectives on MBKU based on the Peer Advisor’s personal experience within their program along with formal training.  Peer Advisors are students who are committed to student leadership.  They show a strong commitment to helping new students make the transition to informed, successful professional students who will be responsible for their own academic goals and professional growth.

    Peer Advisors are assigned a specific group of incoming students and contact each of them at least once over the summer.  Each Peer Advisor has different preferences and ways of welcoming their group of advisees to campus.  Some communicate via technology while others prefer phone calls or face-to-face meetings and get-togethers throughout the entire academic year.

    During University Orientation, Peer Advisors play an essential role by giving campus tours, leading icebreaker and team building activities, and facilitating some of the educational sessions.
