Peer Counseling Program

One of the core components of the Providence Institute is peer counseling. Every incoming PI Candidate will be assigned a peer counselor at the start of the Summer Program. Assignments are arranged on a compatibility basis.

Students are required to work with their peer counselor throughout the course of the academic year during study hall sessions, group activities, academic workshops and evaluation meetings. 

Peer counselors will...

  • Provide immediate, pro-active support for their assigned students
  • Assist with the transition of PI students from high school to college
  • Promote academic excellence
  • Encourage the development of positive relationships with students, faculty and staff
  • Offer knowledge about campus services and resources
  • Foster self-confidence so that PI students become more independent 
  • Empower PI students by modeling the study, organizational and personal skills needed for success
  • Be a consistent and reliable source of structure and motivation
