Peabody peer advisers are academic leaders who work closely with Peabody Advising and the Office of Academic Affairs to enhance the student experience. Through programs and one-on-one conversations, peer advisors raise awareness of academic policies, processes, and opportunities; help students understand how to access resources; and promote engagement in academic life and the Peabody community.

Peer advisers are in good academic standing and are selected for their commitment to helping fellow students, adherence to academic integrity and policies, and inclusion.  Peer advisers are dedicated to maintaining discretion.
