PEER DEAN PLANNING COMMITTEE

The Peer Dean Planning Committee (PDPC) serves as the Executive Council for the Peer Dean Association.  As members of PDPC, students get the opportunity to expand their leadership capabilities by working directly with full-time staff to plan and implement an effective and fun-filled orientation and transition programs. This group of student-leaders works tirelessly to ensure that incoming students are equipped with student mentors and peer leaders throughout their first year experience.
