The need to retain, develop, and launch students has never been greater. peeqMe uses a "Student First" approach. We provide an amazing new way to engage students in their own development. Using social networks, positive psychology, and a twitter-like feedback mechanism, peeqMe unlocks the unique talents and style of students, connects them to advisors, alumni coaches, peer mentors, and supports crowd-sourced, structured feedback to focus and develop them during their critical college years. It works great for groups, cohorts, and project teams as well.
