Peer Mentoring

Schedule a virtual appointment with a FILL Peer Mentor in Navigate. You can also check Navigate for our drop-in hours.

FILL Peer Mentors are VCU students who have successfully completed Focused Inquiry courses and are here to support you in reaching your full potential in FI courses. We can help with class presentations, MLA/APA citations, how to talk to your FI professor, and information about other VCU resources. If you have a question and don't know who to ask, ask us! If we can't answer it, we'll connect you with someone who does.
