PALs stands for Peer Advocate Leaders.

We serve as peer mentors to help students navigate a successful college career. PALs are trained to work with students to connect them with CU Denver, the Auraria Campus, and the Denver community. These mentoring relationships are designed to foster student engagement and academic success by providing peer-level support that promotes student achievement, growth, and learning through the student’s career at CU Denver. PALs are paired in First-Year Experience courses to plan and facilitate educational and social activities. PALs also assist students in one-on-one environments.
