Who We Are

The Peer Learning Consultant Program helps Stanford students develop learning strategies that will allow them to reach their academic goals. Our Learning Consultants work with both undergraduate and graduate students across all disciplines and serve over 1,200 students annually. Learning Consultants are required to undergo comprehensive training and the selection process is highly competitive. In 2019, the Peer Learning Consultant Program forged formal partnerships with the Athletic Academic Resource Center (AARC) and the School of Engineering's Equity and Inclusion Initiatives (EII) to bring dedicated academic support to Stanford student-athletes and graduate students in the School of Engineering, respectively.
