Peer-Led Team Learning
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Peer-Led Team Learning

Peer-​Led Team Learning (PLTL) is a learning and leadership program accomplished through a collaborative effort between the Metas Program and STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). The central component of the program is weekly PLTL worksh​ops for students enrolled in specified STEM courses that are facilitated by peer leaders. During the workshops, students participate in discussions, problem solving, and other activities to assist them in enh​ancing their su​bject matter knowledge, study skills, and course success.


Want to be a Peer Leader?
We have confidence in you. Have you been inspired to become a Peer Leader after attending PLTL Workshops? Perhaps you have all the confidence and skills to become a Peer Leader and you have said to yourself, "I can do this!" Or are you on the fence and second guessing your ability to lead workshops? Don't worry. Apply and give it try. We're here to develop your confidence and ability to lead workshops as long as you are committed to our training program.   

Minimum Qualifications
Demonstrate sensitivity, knowledge, and understanding of the diverse academic, socioeconomic, gender, cultural, disability, and ethnic backgrounds of the students we serve; and sensitivity to and knowledge and understanding of groups historically underrepresented, and groups who may have experienced discrimination.
