Hui K.U.K.U.I.’s Peer Mentoring Program goals are to:
“Kōkua, or help, aide, and assist our mentees with their acclimation to UHMC. We offer a deep understanding and empathy for any problems or concerns our students may have. Through proper ka‘a‘ike (communication) we will be able to effectively create ongoing, meaningful relationships between and with mentors and peers. We will facilitate the social and academic transitions to school life, thereby increasing persistence, academic success and overall growth (ulu a‘e.) By offering our insightand experience we hope to help participants gain knowledge of campus resources, including academic, social, and health support networks, and opportunities for involvement and leadership.”
We are also to help students (objectives):
• to develop and enhance a sense of student identity
• to become effectively integrated into the school, faculty and campus as a whole
• to articulate a sense of purpose and place about being at UHMC and about pursuing their particular program of study
• to learn to be contributing members of an organization/community
• to acquire the necessary skills to become independent and life-long learners
• to embrace the responsibility for achieving success academically
