Peer Academic Coaches

Peer Academic Coaches

Peer Academic Coaches (PAC) are diverse upper-class student leaders that provide academic support, motivation, and mentorship throughout a new students' first year at Hawai'i Pacific University. PACs aid new students in transitioning to college life, living on Oahu, learning about student leadership and academic opportunities, and much more! In addition, PACs connect with new students weekly to provide peer advisement, resources, and referrals to impact a new student's academic, cultural, social and personal needs.

Why do I need a Peer Academic Coach?

  • A Peer Academic Coach can help answer your questions as a peer
  • Peer Academic Coaches are familiar with Oahu and Hawaii Pacific University, making them an excellent resource when seeking advice on where to go for your various needs
  • Creating a connection with a PAC helps you to establish a network with other students before you arrive to Oahu
