Peer Advisor Program
Peer Advisor Program
Peer Advisors assist students who have been notified by the Office of Academic Integrity & Student Conduct for an alleged policy violation, and they promote awareness and provide education about the Student Conduct and Academic Integrity processes to students and campus partners.
Unsure how to respond to your Notification Letter? Peer Advisors can help! The Peer Advisor’s role is to help, assist, and support the student. They do not act as a spokesperson, advocate, or defense counsel for the student.
