Peer Research Consultants Now Available In Walter

The Peer Research Consultant (PRC) program is now available to give students peer help on their research questions. PRCs can help students narrow a topic, find articles and books, select academic sources, and more. Students looking for additional help or feeling overwhelmed by their research papers will be good candidates for the program. The PRCs will also refer students to subject librarians if needed.

For the fall 2009 pilot phase, the program will concentrate on supporting First Year Writing and SEAM (Student Excellence in Academics and Multiculturalism).
