Meet the PALs

The ALLIES in STEM Center employs Peer Academic Leaders (PALs) who work to support the success of our program and our students.

    • Peer Mentors participate in faculty-sponsored research, live & work with our STEM Academy over the summer, and serve as Mentors to first-year STEM Scholars throughout the academic year.
    • Peer Tutors work within STEM departments to offer one-on-one tutoring support to all students.
    • Student Workers are integral members of our ALLIES in STEM Center staff. They provide administrative support to our team, & connect all students & Center visitors to  appropriate ALLIES in STEM resources.
    • Supplemental Instruction Leaders work within historically difficult gateway STEM courses. They provide support & guidance for excelling in these difficult classes.
    • STEM Stewards are returning second year STEM Scholars. These students serve as Mentors to second-year STEM Scholars throughout the academic year.
