Study Away Peer Leaders

Every semester, the Center for Study Away Peer Leaders offer their perspectives from their study away experience in order to support their peers, through leadership and facilitation of both study away returnee and study away pre-departure events. Learn more about this semester’s Study Away Peer Leaders below, feel free to reach out to them with questions about their experiences, and say hello to them around campus at various Study Away events.

We are no longer accepting applications for Fall 2023 Peer Leaders. Keep an eye out for Spring 2024 hiring in the fall!
