What is Students Helping Students?

Students Helping Students is about connecting with other student(s) - your peers - to support your learning and development. Students Helping Students programs in a university context serve many purposes - from helping students in difficulty to providing information and/or education to inspiring and motivating students to action. At McGill, there are more than 50 programs and initiatives through which students provide various forms of support to other students. 

Peer support amongst University students has been shown to be a mutually beneficial experience for all parties.


McGill University is situated on the traditional territory of the Kanien’kehà:ka, a place which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst nations. We recognize and respect the Kanien’kehà:ka as the traditional custodians of the lands and waters on which we meet today.
