Academic Advising and Phoenix GPS team up for ‘peer advising’
For what is believed to be the first time in its existence, UW-Green Bay is making use of peer advisers. The PAC people (Peer Advising Consultants) represent a collaborative effort between the Office of Academic Advising and the Phoenix GPS Program. The advisers, a group of four sophomores who completed the GPS program last year, will be available to assist students with basic registration questions, provide information about campus resources, and serve as student representatives of Academic Advising. Director Darrel Renier says that, in addition to providing a valuable advising resource for students on campus, the PAC program provides second-year students with a valuable high-impact experience, and is part of a broader effort to improve sophomore retention on campus. The PAC will be doing pre-registration sessions and assisting during drop-in hours beginning next week. A link to more information about the peer advisers can be found at www.uwgb.edu/advising/staff/.
