Peer Academic Leader Seminar (PALS)


PALS is a Campus Rules & Regulations Orientation. Any student employed as a peer tutor, advisor, undergraduate tutor, SI Leader, lab tutor or assistant, peer academic leader or mentor at UMSL needs this important training.

It is campus policy that all students who are employed as  tutors, mentors, or in similar positions attend the Peer Academic Leader Seminar (PALS) to learn the mandatory campus policies and procedures concerning discrimination, sexual harassment, and privacy laws; prevention of academic dishonesty; student conduct regulations; and  promotion of a positive work and learning environment.

Note:  If you have taken the PALS training within the last two years, you do not need to take PALS again.
