Fall 2019 Cornerstone Mentor Application

Cornerstone is a program intended to provide community, support, and a social foundation to students who are continuing to explore how to find their footing in their first-semester at Georgetown. New students who participate in Cornerstone will be matched with a peer mentor and a small group of other new students for a weekly dinner to build community, talk about challenges and successes of college, and work together to set goals and find a solid footing at Georgetown.

Cornerstone Peer Mentors are facilitators leading and mentoring first-year and transfer students throughout their Cornerstone experience. Peer Mentors will support students in reflecting and discussing their Georgetown experience with a peer group. Peer Mentors will also encourage new students through identifying their own individual future goals, challenges, and action steps in a small-group setting. The goal is that through the support of a Peer Mentor, new students will have the support, skills, and resources to find their foundation within a social community context.

Fall 2019 Cornerstone weekly dinners will start on the week of October 14 and end the week of December, 2019.
