Student Staff

Student Program Assistants

Student Program Assistants with prior experience learning abroad are available for consultations with students considering study, research, or internships abroad.

Peer advisors can help you think about:

  • What kind of experience would best fit your academic and professional goals;
  • Which factors you should consider in weighing your learning abroad options;
  • How you should go about planning for your learning abroad experience; and
  • Who else you should talk with.

As peer advisors, they also hold conversations with students who have returned to campus following their time abroad, helping them unpack their experiences, re-acclimate to campus, and envision ways to academically and professionally build on their time abroad.
