HPSE Peer Advisors
The Higher and Post Secondary Education
Program is fortunate to have a
student peer advisors who are available to
help new students
transition into our
program, Teachers College, and New York
being accepted, each new
student is paired with a current student who
is in the same degree program and shares many of the same interests.
The purpose of the peer advisors is to provide new students with advice on a variety of issues, such as classes to take, organizations to join, and conferences in which to participate. Peer advisors will also be able to provide guidance on taking advantage of living in New York City as well as the many curricular and extra-curricular opportunities and Columbia University. Peer advisors will communicate via email or over the phone before new students arrive on campus.
If you have been admitted to our program and want to be provided with the name of your peer advisor or have questions, please contact Mr. Scott Van Pelt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
