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. A meeting with a peer advisor is required to begin the declaration process for STS.

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] Please do not look up and email Peer Advisor's personal email addresses!
