Peer Support Service

The ACC offers a free mentoring service to IU students led by peer mentors from a variety of academic disciplines. These student peer mentors provide advice, support, attention, and kindness to students who would like some guidance with cultural adjustment, campus life, and schoolwork. These one-on-one meetings may also be an opportunity to practice conversational English and meet new friends. Walk-ins are welcome, and no appointments are needed.

For fall 2015, the Peer Support Service will run from August 31 to December 11.

Responding to Incidents of Casual and Everyday Racism

Need a place to talk about feeling discriminated on campus or in the community? Don’t know what to do when someone makes a racial comment about your friends or you? We can help! Please do not hesitate to contact us at the ACC. This service is provided to allow students to share personal experiences of racism and discuss ways of identifying, coping with, and contorting casual and everyday racism in a confidential atmosphere.
