PEERS

Read with PEERS (Purpose, Engagement, Evaluation, Resonance, Synthesis)! Successful students set a purpose, engage, evaluate, respond and synthesize as they read. The peers program is a place where peers help peers actively engage in the reading process.  Students can get support from their peers that have already successfully completed similar course work. PEERS is designed to assist pre-college students in required reading for all coursework across the curriculum during their first year at Tompkins Cortland. Hours: Monday-Thursday 3-6 in Room 121A.  In addition there may be hours in residence life (D building) based on interest and attendance.

The Vector Network

The Vector Network assists first-generation students, socio-economic disadvantaged students, and students from historically underrepresented groups in making a successful academic and social transition to life at Tompkins Cortland Community College. Peer mentors undergo specialized training and offer social, academic, and philosophical support to student mentees. In addition to the peer relationship, the program supports students’ academic progress and social adjustment to the Tompkins Cortland environment by utilizing Vector Faculty Mentors, College offices, departments, leadership programs, and student organizations to provide assistance, encouragement, and practical experiences.
