PA Staff

Peer Advisors (PAs) play a vital role in helping advise and support business students across all campuses.  Peer Advisors have a caseload of first year students that they advise and touch base with through a student's first year to ensure they are getting involved in business related activities, utilizing resources on campus, and are aware of events and opportunities.  In addition to their first year mentees, they also help staff walk-in hours in the Office of Undergraduate Advising, host workshops, and assist in various office projects.


International Peer Advisors assist in supporting the large number of first year international business students on the Storrs campus.  International PAs co-teach a UNIV 1800 course in the Fall semester with a professional advisor from the Office of Undergraduate Advising.  They meet regularly with students in their class and plan events for international business students throughout the year.  International PAs also help staff walk-in hours in the Office of Undergraduate Advising and assist with office projects and processes.
