Mission of Cross-College Advising Service

Cross-College Advising Service (CCAS) provides academic advising for undergraduates who are exploring majors. CCAS is dedicated to holistic student learning and serves the University of Wisconsin-Madison across all eight undergraduate schools and colleges.

Residence Hall Peer Advisor Position Description

Peer Advisors work collaboratively with CCAS professional advisors, as well as individually, to meet with incoming students about their academic options and to help them to select and enroll in courses. In addition to providing drop-in advising to students, Peer Advisors perform a variety of organizational tasks that support the functions of their CCAS Residence Hall office. Throughout the year, Peer Advisors will have the opportunity to assist with various events and student programming outside of their normal hours, such as the annual Majors Fair. Peer advisors also provide valuable campus information and model successful student behavior.

Peer Advisors can gain skills in problem solving and communication, are committed to helping exploring students, and possess a willingness to learn. No prior experiences is necessary; training on both academic content and advising skills will be provided.
