Mighty Mentors are exemplary members of the Higher Learning Commission's Peer Corps -- the people, often called peer reviewers, who work in small teams to help review institutions' accreditation status. More than 600 people currently serve as HLC peer reviewers. Pam Pinahs-Schultz was one of only three peer reviewers identified for outstanding mentorship in 2020.
Mighty Mentors selflessly share their knowledge and wisdom, and lend a guiding hand to other peer reviewers whenever they can. These experienced professionals are essential to HLC’s success, and they help develop the next generation of leaders and reviewers in the Peer Corps. Mighty Mentors are nominated by a peer reviewer who served with them who praised them for their leadership ability, positive attitude, organizational prowess, process knowledge, and mentoring skills.
