Welcome to the Middle Earth
Peer Assistance Program
A program run through Counseling and Psychological Services at the University at ALbany, the Middle Earth Peer Assistance Program provides telephone hotline (518-442-5777) and online peer assistance, peer education, and peer career advisement services to assist students in meeting their educational goals and in coping with emotional, social, and other life issues that they face. Since its beginning in 1970, its primary focus has been on alcohol and other drug prevention as it relates to these issues. An additional mission of the program is to strive toward increased diversity within the organization so that services offered may be most sensitive to the individual needs and experiencesof the widest cross-section of students on our diverse campus.
