Peer Career Advisors (PCAs)

Our Mission

The purpose of the Peer Career Advisor (PCA) Program is to provide career exploration, advising, and career development assistance, to students on a peer-to-peer level. Peer Career Advisors (PCAs) are trained to present in a variety of career development topics, to assist with student outreach, and to promote the importance of early and continuous career planning and preparation. The program is a collaborative effort between the University Career Center and the academic colleges.
