We’re all in this together! Peer Academic Advisors (PAAs) are paid and trained student advisors and leaders who want to give back to the honors community by helping current CHP students with CHP and academic needs. They act as mentors, help students plan out their courses through graduation, advise about classes and majors, and inform students about UCI resources.

PAAs are also part of the CHP leadership team, including the Campuswide Honors Student Council (CHSC) and the Honors Resident Advisors (RAs). Together, the CHP leaders plan community events, coordinate CHP volunteer activities, and address honors academic concerns.

CHP sophomores and juniors in good standing are eligible to apply for this position. After graduating from UCI, CHP PAAs have gone on to work in student affairs, become doctors, writers, politicians, computer programmers, professors, etc. This is a great way for active leaders who are excited about the CHP classes and community to continue to develop their leadership skills.
