Join Our Team

Each academic year, the TRC hires a new team of peer advisors! 

Apply for one of our paid Transfer and Reentry Peer Advisor positions via Handshake: Transfer Peer Advisor (Handshake Job ID: 7330843) and Reentry Peer Advisor (Handshake Job ID: 7330635)! Our Peer Advisors work under the direction of professional staff in the Transfer and Reentry Center (TRC) in Dutton Hall (and in the virtual space as needed). 

The TRC Peer Advisors strive to be a first point of contact for Transfer and Reentry students and to assist them in navigating the University and providing referrals when appropriate, planning and facilitating various events each quarter, and support in running the center on a day-to-day basis.
