UNIV 0123: A Practical Introduction to Peer Advising

Many students begin their journey into the Meiklejohn Peer Advising program through enrollment in UNIV 0123: A Practical Introduction to Peer Advising. This course, instructed by College Deans and Meiklejohn Leaders, equips first-years, sophomores, and juniors with the tools and resources necessary to deliver effective peer advising strategies. UNIV 0123 culminates in a final group project designed to concretize students’ knowledge and awareness of various peer advising pedagogies. Whether targeted at prospective peer advisors or first-year students, these projects capture the academic, social, and emotional needs of the holistic Brown student. Below, you will find several examples of past final projects. We encourage you to peruse these projects as they include highly relevant information for Brown students - especially first years!

If you are interested in taking UNIV 0123, the course is offered every Spring semester. Please consult Courses @ Brown for more information!
