Learn About Each Division

Peer Academic Coaching

Peer Academic Coaches are a specialized group of Peer Learning Consultants who are mid-to-late-stage graduate or professional students that are familiar with the academic challenges at Stanford. Our Peer Academic Coaches work alongside our Professional Academic Coaches to provide one-on-one academic coaching to all Stanford students. They also provide one-on-one completion coaching to help Stanford undergraduate students resolve any Incomplete grades received in the last academic year. 


Curriculum Design

Curriculum Designers are undergraduate or graduate students, responsible for the creation of presentation, workshop, studio, and academic programming content, as well as academic skills handouts and other asynchronous resources. They also brainstorm and develop innovative ideas and re-envision existing materials into a more accessible and engaging manner for students.


Academic Skills Education

Academic Skills Educators provide tailored academic skills workshops for the Stanford community including academic departments, student groups, bridge programs, residence halls, summer programs, community centers, and more. Learning consultants in this division also provide outreach (you may find them at tabling events and in your classrooms) and liaise with community centers, departments, and other campus partners to bring awareness of our programs and resources to the wider Stanford student community. 


Engineering Equity

Through a joint partnership with the School of Engineering's Equity and Inclusion Initiatives, (EII) the Center for Teaching and Learning hires Engineering Learning Consultants to primarily work with Stanford graduate students in the School of Engineering. ELCs promote equity and inclusion in Engineering learning spaces and are current graduate students in the School of Engineering. 


Program Coordination

Program Coordinators are responsible for managing and facilitating academic skills events such as our study halls and time management refreshers. They are also responsible for managing the logistics for academic programming, events, workshops, study halls, and academic studios. They provide administrative support for the other four divisions and ensure operational efficiency of the Peer Learning Consultant Program.


Special Projects

PLCs in the Special Projects Division will be responsible for the creation, administration, and development of specialized projects within the Peer Learning Consultant Program, with each PLC chosen for oversight of a specific project. The Special Projects Division offers interested students the opportunity to set their own schedules and freedom to pursue independent work, as well as assigned tasks, that are both relevant to programmatic needs and their personal expertise, all in the spirit of continuous improvement of the PLCP. Current examples of roles that fall under the Special Projects Division include Graphic Designer and Data Analyst.
