Marylhurst Launches Peer Mentoring Program

Marylhurst University has partnered with Oregon Campus Compact to host Sarah Gallegos as an AmeriCorps retention project member.

As the AmeriCorps retention specialist in the Office of Student Engagement & Support at Marylhurst, Sarah will implement a campus-based peer mentoring program, matching college student mentors with at-risk college mentees. Her goal is to increase the retention of nontraditional, underrepresented students who are at risk of not completing a four-year degree.

"I hope that the students I serve will overcome hurdles between themselves and their dreams," Sarah said. "As a teacher in an urban area I prided myself on the opportunities I provided for my students. I hope to impart what they have taught me to help adult students facing the same challenges."

To learn more about the peer mentoring program, contact Sarah Gallegos at 503.534.4097 or sgallegos@marylhurst.edu.
