The Peer Research Consultants (PRC) program's goal is to support FYW students as they do library research and find sources to use in their writing. The PRCs build on skills learned in the Unravel the Library workshops.

New for spring:
  • Evening drop-in hours available Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays with daily drop-in hours Monday-Friday in Wilson Library, Walter Library, and Appleby Hall (Multicultural Center for Academic Excellence).
  • Students can get a certificate to show they have worked with the PRCs. This can be useful for giving points or extra credit.
  • The PRCs are available for class visits and/or we can send you fliers for class distribution.
How many students were seen in fall?
  • The PRCs met with over 60 students in fall semester-this exceeded our estimates for this new program.
  • Over 60% of students were in WRIT 1301 and 3% from WRIT 1201
  • In general, students met with PRCs for over 30 minutes for in-depth guidance
What did students have to say about the PRCs?
Here are some quotes from students this fall:
  • "She was very helpful when I was looking for specific information on the library website. She explained the website very well and gave excellent tips!"
  • "He was very helpful in  helping me figure out what I wanted to write my paper on and where I could find the sources. Afterwards I was able to understand my paper."
  • "Approachable advising that assisted me with furthering my research goals; very useful."
How do students find out about the PRCs?
  • Over 50% of the students heard about the program from FYW instructors.
