Peer Coaching with PALs

Your success is our "no excuse" priority and Peer Assistant Leaders (PALs) are here to help.

What are PALs?

PALs are current undergraduate student leaders, trained by professional Completion Specialists in the Office of Graduation and Retention Initiatives. As current students, PALs have created successful pathways at UH and are prepared to help other students create their own. Use the links below to schedule time with a PAL.

What is Peer Coaching?

Sometimes you don't know what questions to ask and other times you know the question but don't know who to ask. Through Peer Coaching, PALs provide one-on-one, individualized support during your time at UH.
