Peer Academic Leaders (PAL)

Peer Academic Leader

A Peer Academic Leader (PAL) is an upper year, residence student staff, here to support you in your academics at UTM! They live in residence and aim to strengthen your academic resiliency and skills to be successful in your academic transition.

Students who opt-in to a PAL will have access to the following:

  • Academic skills workshops on topics such as campus resources, study technique note-taking, and degree planning
  • One-on-one meetings with their PAL
  • Socials and academic development events with fellow students
  • An academic network with faculty, campus resources and services

For the 2020 - 2021 Academic Year, all first-year residence students will be opted into the PAL program. If you have any questions about the PAL program or your application, contact Bianca Anderson, Residence Education & Transition Coordinator, at bianca.anderson@utoronto.ca.
