Peer Advising

Peer Advising Drop-In

What is the Career Peer Advising Program?

Career Development and Experiential Learning (CDEL) launched a peer advising program in August 2017 to allow us to better support students with expanded drop-in hours and readily available assistance. With the guidance of CDEL staff, Peer Advisors (PAs) are a vital resource for students in all areas of career development and job search. Our PAs are thoroughly trained to advise students from all disciplines in career-related topics and provide career coaching sessions. PAs are also ambassadors for CDEL, leading campus-wide promotional initiatives and supporting events.
