- As higher education professionals consider establishing or expanding mentoring programs as mediums through which to achieve student retention and success, particularly among certain student sub-populations, it is important to understand more about the effectiveness and best practices of current programs in the field. This research project is a case study of BLUEprint, a peer mentoring program coordinated by the Paul Robeson Cultural Center at The Pennsylvania State University, University Park campus. The study looks to understand the programs educational efforts and discern best practices that student affairs and higher education practitioners should take note of. This project captures programmatic experiences and milestones of academic and personal development noted by current participants. Aside from understanding the program as a case study of peer mentoring, research participants were assessed to gauge their level of self-authorship development, a student growth and development marker often noted in higher education literature as an assessment goal and key benchmarking item for student affairs programming.
