Peer Advisors

The STS Peer Advisors work closely with the Student Services Officer and serve as a resource for initial questions about major course planning, departmental policies, and the declaration process. The Peer Advisors have completed a special training that augments their knowledge of the STS curriculum and can offer valuable student insight on the major.

All students interested in declaring must first meet with a Peer Advisor to review their curriculum proposal. You can set-up an appointment during their office hours via email or stop by any-time during their office hours, no appointment necessary! Appointment requests and questions can be directed to sts-advisors [at]

Since she was little, Caroline has always loved animals and the environment. Coming to Stanford she realized that STS provided a perfect track for her existing interests while still getting her outside of her comfort zone academically. STS exposed her to a magnitude of departments and perspectives, allowing her to expand her studies and learn from others. She now focuses her research on water quality crises and resulting social justice issues while playing field hockey here at Stanford.
