The purpose of this position is to provide exceptional student support to CSUSM students who arrive in UAS with a variety of advising related needs. Peer Advisors will perform basic intake analysis to determine if they can assist the student themselves, refer student to the appropriate Academic Advisor, or provide the appropriate campus resource referral. Student support will often include demonstrating student tools and accessing UAS website to provide advising related information.
"There is nothing more fulfilling than knowing you’re making a difference by providing a fellow student with essential information, or guiding them in the right direction. Being a Peer Advisor has not only been of benefit to our student population with their urgent issues, but my own professional development and interpersonal skills."
