The Peer Advising program was started in the fall of 1991 by Eileen Nelson, a JMU Psychology Professor. It started with five psychology majors who received training and assisted with the organization of the Peer Advising Office. Then, in 2000, the program was turned over to Dr. William Evans. Dr. Evans oversaw Psychology Peer Advising for 11 years. Beginning in the fall of 2011, Professor Kimberly DuVall took over as the faculty advisor for Psychology Peer Advising. Since beginning with five students in 1991, we have grown to a yearly group of 34 Psychology Peer Advisors, both Juniors and Seniors, whom are constantly striving for excellence in serving the Psychology Department, James Madison Univeristy, the community, and possibly even, YOU!
The Psychology Peer Advising Program exhibits the following core values in everything we do:
Service - To actively serve psychology students, the psychology department, James Madison University, and the community. We share the responsibility of advising with the faculty.
Attitude - To exemplify a positive attitude throughout our practices, projects, and every day life.
Leadership - To be an organization that exhibits, promotes, and develops leadership.
Teamwork - To create an environment that fosters teamwork among it's members and with those whom we help.
Excellence - To always strive to do our best in everything we do.
