At the heart of PAL - PAL Peer Mentors

PAL Peer Mentors are academically strong students who take a lead role in developing and delivering learning support programs for students at the U of S. Some Peer Mentors lead course-specific study groups assigned to a select set of larger, traditionally difficult undergraduate courses, some provide support for study and learning skills by leading small-group workshops, and others work with specialized projects at the U of S. This group of students do a remarkable job at balancing their involvement within PAL at the University Learning Centre, their studies, as well as sports and hobbies.

A philosophy underlying all PAL programs is to provide comfortable and safe learning environments that engage and support students in their academic pursuits.
