Nominations open for the Ithaca seminar peer leader program

Ithaca College is looking for students to become peer leaders in the Ithaca Seminar Program for next semester.

Peer leaders will serve as a welcoming, more experienced resource to incoming students and will offer new students a relatable perspective while serving as an example of leadership on and off campus. Peer leaders will be required to complete a 0–1 credit experiential learning course on facilitating student success, facilitate discussions and presentations regarding student transition to college, use communication skills and resources to engage first-year students in and out of class, connect students to resources at the college, encourage campus resources and demonstrate respect for all students. The campus community can nominate a student through the peer leader nomination form.  Any questions about the program can be directed to Elizabeth Bleicher, dean of Student Success and Retention  at [email protected]
