REACH - University of Louisville

Ambassador CRLA International Certification

The University of Louisville's REACH Ambassadors have earned the Peer Mentor Program Certification sponsored by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). Certification is based on more than two years of research and discussion by this international and professional organization.

The Ambassadors’ certification communicates validity among our colleagues, credibility to our administrators and institutions, and carries prestige among other colleges and universities who have peer mentoring programs.

The University of Louisville’s REACH Ambassadors join a list of only 25 certified peer mentoring programs. The list includes peer mentoring programs at the University of South Florida, the University of Texas at Austin and at El Paso, Northern Illinois University and Clemson University.
