In 2018 Penn State Brandywine developed a peer mentoring program known as PALs. Three students embarked on coordinated investigations to answer the research question: How do we improve the PAL peer mentoring program at Penn State Brandywine? One student investigated how to apply the principles of cognitive psychology. Another student investigated for a deeper understanding of students with disabilities and trauma informed care. Yet another student investigated best practices associated with peer mentoring programs.
