Peer Advisors

What is a Peer Advisor?

Peer Advisors (PAs) assist in providing direct service to new students aimed at encouraging a successful academic and social transition into the UW Tacoma community. PAs serve as role models and mentors to new students both through direct one-on-one interactions and through group activities and events. PAs are responsible for connecting new students with important campus resources and key university contacts fostering a positive transition and student experience.
