Join a few of our current peer mentors for a 30 minute information session about the PAL program. You will have the opportunity to ask questions, learn about the time commitment and what's in it for you. There are seven offerings of these information sessions from February 27th-March 3rd. For specific dates and times, visit our registration page.

What is a Peer Mentor?

A Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) Peer Mentor is an academically strong undergraduate student who participates in developing and delivering learning support programs, taking a lead in an academic support community at the U of S. Some Peer Mentors act as coaches for course-specific study groups assigned to a select set of larger, traditionally difficult undergraduate courses, some provide support for study and learning skills by leading small-group workshops, and others work with specialized projects or programs in the SLS and other units on campus. A philosophy underlying all PAL programs is to provide positive, safe, and comfortable learning environments that encourage and support students in their academic pursuits.
