MISSION AND PHIlosophy
The Peer Assisted Learning program’s mission is to offer students free additional academic group study support lead by Peer Leaders, current students who have completed the course successfully. PAL sessions are designed to help students apply course concepts and work the course material in a comfortable and supportive atmosphere. Students who attend PAL sessions are shown to produce higher final course grades than students who do not attend. We are committed to offering high-quality lead sessions by continually training our Peer Leaders in professional development, teaching and learning strategies appropriate for group-study.
