The Peer Collective
Community | Connectivity | Conversation
We are a “by the students, for the students” initiative whose mission is to act as a bridge connecting students with their peers, across year and program, to foster a community of individuals uniquely equipped to provide support, encouragement, understanding, and inspiration through shared experiences. Our goal is to help support the general health and well-being of each student, physically, mentally, emotionally, and academically, in order to foster their personal and academic success.
In short, we are YOU — and we want to improve the graduate school experience for each and every student through community, connectivity, and conversation. In addition, sharing your stories is one of many ways your voices can be heard, your experiences shared, and your individuality celebrated. This website is your conduit to the community and a consolidation of resources. Head to our Newsletter tab to submit your stories and check us out on social media for continued updates!
