 About the Peer Leadership Program

Montclair State University provides countless opportunities for our students to enhance their academic and personal growth. The Peer Leader Program is one of those great opportunities. During New Student Orientation our Peer Leaders serve as invaluable resources that facilitate a positive transition for new students and their family members.

Peer Leaders are Montclair State University under-graduate students who possess leadership qualities and have a desire to be first-year student advocates. Peer leaders provide support during New Student Orientation and other CAST programs. Peer Leaders are committed, hard working, intelligent, resourceful, and enthusiastic students who possess a strong desire to work with a diverse population of first-year students and their family members. Through rigorous training and development they attain skills that allow them to enhance the quality of the New Student Orientation program on a continuous basis and they serve as the core of CAST's efforts during orientation. Peer Leaders must integrate their roles as college representatives, community builders, programmers, and student advocates. It is the expectation of CAST that each Peer Leader is genuinely interested in the welfare of all first-year students and their family members.

Students interested in being a Peer Leader must meet the position’s qualifications, apply, and complete a training program once they are hired for the position.

 

Peer Advisor Program (Fall and Spring)


Peer Advisors (PA) are a dynamic team of undergraduate students who provide low-level advisement in the Center for Advising and Student Transitions (CAST). Peer Advisors are available to assist you with choosing an academic major or minor, selecting courses for the fall and spring semesters, responding to your email and telephone questions, and explaining how to complete various advising related forms. The Peer Advisor Program is an extension of the existing Peer Leadership program. Only students selected and trained as peer leaders are eligible to apply for this program.
