The Gateways to Completion project at Nevada State College has led to significant advances in student success among targeted populations (e.g., first-generation and diverse students), including unprecedented gains in retention, student satisfaction, and grade point average. Much of this success owes to the development of a new peer support specialist known as a “course assistant” – a peer mentor, supplemental instruction leader, and embedded tutor who attends the class sessions of critical gateway courses and provides students with high-quality academic and non-cognitive guidance. This workshop focuses on practical insights into how we created this peer support program, including the specific goals and training systems that underlie the initiative, and should provide attendees with actionable guidance on how to create like-minded programs on their home campuses.
