Through in-person and online advisement, Peer Advisors help students understand and navigate major requirements, university policies, and careers in Chicana/o Studies. Peer Advisors also refer students to campus resources when appropriate. Peer Advisors work under the Staff Undergraduate Advisor as part of the department staff team and are vital to the everyday operations of the department. Chicana/o Peer Advisors ultimately help students retain and persist to degree completion at UCSB.
