WHO ARE LEAD PEER ADVISORS?
Peer Advisors (PA's) are a group of student leaders who work for the LEAD program. These are students who have a desire to help their fellow students and have a passion for the LEAD program and its mission.
WHAT DO PEER ADVISORS DO?
The Peer Advisor's job is twofold. First, they are assigned a group of first-year students whom they help navigate through their first year requirements. PA's are also there as a friend and resource to their advisees. They provide social programs in the residence hall and make a point to check in with their advisees on a regular basis.
The second piece of the PA job is to facilitate or support LEAD events. This includes running simulations on campus, facilitating discussions on controversial topics, holding dinners to listen to student feedback on the LEAD program and administering some of the financial workshops. All PA's are involved in running large LEAD initiatives such as the LEAD piece of orientation, Sophomore Symposium and the Game of Life.
