Peer Support

E-Mentors

In the fall of 2006, CARDS launched the E-Mentors Program in which incoming students with disabilities are matched with current students with disabilities for informal/online networking and peer support. Disability categories for E-Mentors include: ADD/ADHD, chronic medical conditions, hearing disabiliites, learning disabilities (LD), mobility impairments, psychiatric disabilities and visual impairments.

All students who have self-identified a disability (during their intake) will receive information about the E-Mentors program and have the option to sign up to participate!  Incoming students may contact CARDS staff if they would like to be in touch with an E-Mentor prior to coming to campus at cards@barnard.edu and then they can choose to contact their E-Mentor re: any questions they may have prior to their arrival on campus. When new students register with CARDS at any time during the academic year, they may also choose to be assigned an E-mentor.
 
If you would like to participate in the E-Mentors Program—either as a mentor or a mentee (recipient of an E-Mentor), please send an email to Disability Services at cards@barnard.edu. We welcome your interest, involvement and participation.
