    Abstract

    The purpose of this paper is to describe how the Graduate Engineering Education Consortium for Students (GEECS) peer mentoring works and its contribution to the growth of a community of emerging engineering education scholars. Specifically, we discuss the progress of two peer mentoring groups through autoenthographies, which are based on the authors' experiences in developing, facilitating, and contributing to the peer mentoring groups. GEECS peer mentoring is a space for groups of engineering education graduate students to support one another through such activities as goal setting and monitoring.
