Demonstrate respect, dignity, and courtesy at all times.  You are a representative of the university and expected to share the best of the University of New Hampshire with incoming and transfer student participants. 

Maintain professional and appropriate relationships with participants the duration of the program.  It is inappropriate to have a romantic or sexual relationship with program participants.  Such relationships or activities are grounds for immediate termination your position as a peer mentor.

Spend about 4-7 hours each week being a peer mentor.  This includes attending staff meetings, training sessions, office hours, and contact time with participants (e-mails, phone calls, lunch/dinner, etc).  

Communicate any problems, or concerns to Stephanie Bramlett.
