We held the very successful Peer Advising Conference on January 31, 2016. International Mentoring Program (IMP) and First-Gens@Brown presented workshops on international advising and barriers faced by first-gen students, respectively. Representatives from a wide variety of peer advising networks, including Meiklejohn Leadership, Peer Career Advisors, and WiSE Mentors (plus more), participated in the conference. Peer advisors who attended the Conference were able to learn about challenges faced by specific communities on campus and how to better support them in their role as advisors. Those in attendance were also able connect and discuss how their various advising networks could collaborate more in the future.
