Peer Advisors are students who participated in the LEAP experience so successfully
as first year student that we hired them to come back as role models, liaisons and
Each LEAP section has a Peer Advisor, and they are in the class every day, along with
the students. They can answer students’ questions about class content as well as questions
about how to navigate the University.
To prepare for their responsibilities, Peer Advisors take an online summer class and
participate in a two-day workshop just before classes begin.
They meet as a cohort twice a month for the school year, and take on a committee assignment
to help the LEAP program.
They can get credit for this experience by enrolling in LEAP 2002.
Peer Advisors are the leaders of the LEAP program, and being able to include the position
on a resume is a plus.
Peer Advisors often go on to other leadership and service positions on campus.
