Peer Liaisons

Peer liaisons are upperclassmen who help connect first-year students to the wealth of support and programming initiatives based in the LGBTQ Resource Center, the University Chaplain’s Office, the Office of International Students and Scholars, the Afro-American Cultural Center, the Asian American Cultural Center, the La Casa Latino Cultural Center, and the Native American Cultural Center. This program will rely on the resources available at each center, and the peer liaisons will serve as a resource for first-year students and guide them to the services they need. Below are Davenport’s peer liasions.
