Peer Advisors assist students with academic adjustment to SJSU and to the majors. Peer Advisors are assigned to specific colleges (Applied Sciences & Arts, Business, Science, & Social Sciences) or Academic Advising and Retention Services and assist students to navigate the department's degree, programs, and academic policies/procedures. Peer Advisors refer students to other campus resources as well as recommend how students can further their education/experience in their chosen major/profession.
Peer Mentors support students during their academic and social adjustment to SJSU. Peer Mentors know how to refer students to appropriate campus resources in order to navigate more easily through the university system. Peer Mentors work with individual instructors/departments to develop smaller communities within SJSU that more actively involve and engage students in their college experience.
