MISSION AND PHIlosophy
The Peer Assisted Learning program’s mission is to offer students additional academic group study support lead by Peer Leaders, current students who have completed the course successfully. PAL sessions are facilitated by peer leaders who have been trained to guide students and apply course concepts through fun and collaborative activities that provide more practice in UNCC’s most challenging courses. PAL is not a “quick fix.” Therefore, it is encouraged for students to attend early and as often as possible to obtain the best results. Students who attend PAL sessions are shown to produce higher final course grades than students who do not attend. We are committed to offering high-quality sessions by continually training our Peer Leaders in professional development, teaching and learning strategies appropriate for group-study.
