Learn how the San Diego State University (SDSU) GEAR UP to College Avenue Compact program has created a nurturing and supportive learning community for undergraduate near-peer advisors and tutors, so that they, in turn, create that same supportive community for GEAR UP students. Learn how to recruit, train, and retain undergraduates who come from similar backgrounds as GEAR UP students, how to structure staff trainings and meetings for a supportive community of personal and pre-professional development, and how to integrate resources from university and school partners to support undergraduate staff to become positive role models for GEAR UP students.
