Academic Support Center
Peer Advisors

 

Peer Advisor Group Picture

The Peer Advisor program was established in the spring 2012 semester with a small team of upperclassman assisting students in the office. It has grown exponentially over several semesters into a full program with a current team of twenty-five. The Peer Advisors are a critical component of the Academic Support Center as they offer important additional academic and social support to our UAlbany students, specifically those advised in the center. Peer Advisors participate in extensive training with advisor Michael Geroux and are empowered to connect directly with students and assist advisors in day-to-day operations.
