About Peer Assisted Learning Program (PAL)
About the PAL Program
Peer-Assisted Learning (PAL) is a curricular structure that encourages cross-year support among students in science and math gateway courses. The PAL program is housed in the Center for Science and Math Success and supports courses offered by the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. The ECS PAL program supports courses offered by the College of Engineering and Computer Science.
PAL encourages students to learn co-operatively under the guidance of trained students, called PAL Facilitators, who have been very successful in the same course they facilitate, and have been highly trained in group facilitation and pedagogy.

It only takes $3,000 to support one Peer-Assisted Learning Facilitator, a mentor who will impact 50 students annually. You can also give cash, purchase supplies, or sponsor a student poster presentation at a conference.
