Peer Advising Program


Our Vision

Our vision is to be the premier Peer Advisor Program on campus. We provide quality professional development opportunities for Peers and kickstart their careers in higher education, while also contributing to making academic advising a more accessible resource for U of U students.

Our Mission

The AAC Peer Advising Program develops and empowers U of U students to be successful in higher education. Through meaningful professional development opportunities in AAC—advising appointments, tabling, office projects, and trainings—Peer Advisors graduate prepared to pursue careers in higher education. As students who are also advisors, Peers bring to an advising appointment a unique perspective, putting a friendly, un-intimidating face on advising for fellow students.

What is a Peer? A U student trained as an advisor

Peers combine the in-depth knowledge of policies and majors that an advisor has with the understanding of classes and involvement that a student has.

Types of appointments: Degree Audits | First-Year Milestone Advising | Course Registration | Orientation | Peer Advising

Involvement: I am a member of Pi Beta Phi, and I also play piccolo in the Marching Utes.

Why you should meet with me: I have had a traditional college experience: I came from out-of-state and lived in the dorms my freshman year, so I understand the fear incoming freshmen can have.
