Engineering Peer Advocates Program

You are here

The Peer Advocate Program is an interdisciplinary advising and mentoring program designed to connect students who are new to engineering and have questions with knowledgeable, trained, and friendly engineering advocates who will connect them to the support they need. Peer advocates assist students with everything from deciding what major is right for them, getting involved with research, discovering student societies and organizations, tips on talking with faculty, and much more!

Peer advocates are available for drop-in advising during the week in the BOLD Center (ECCE 100). They also offer helpful monthly seminars on topics like how to make the most of faculty office hours and networking mixers.

Peer mentoring and advising programs are shown to promote persistence, provide opportunities that encourage academic success, and foster a sense of belonging.  Peer advocates are here to help students thrive in the College of Engineering & Applied Science at CU-Boulder!

The Peer Advocate Program strives to:

  • Encourage successful academic and personal development
  • Promote student involvement
  • Enrich the connections among engineering students, the college and the CU-Boulder campus
