Undergraduate Students, Graduate Students, No Preference
Continuing Education and Outreach is the office at BU responsible for summer and winter session, non-credit programs and conferences and non- credit courses. We also work with non-matriculated students and prospective non –matriculated students who want to take some courses at BU, and eventually transfer in or apply elsewhere. Because of our work with non- matric students and community residents in our professional development non-credit courses, we realized there was an unmet need with non-traditional students here on campus. So, we have begun to work with, and support non –traditional students here at BU. Peer advisors will help forward that movement, by developing activities, continuing to identify resources. Peer Advisors may also conduct research on this population both within BU and across the US, and conduct surveys to identify needs.
