Peer Liaisons (PLs) are upper-level students at Yale College who help connect first-years to the wealth of support and programming based in the LGBTQ Resource Center, the University Chaplain’s Office, the Office of International Students and Scholars, the Afro-American Cultural Center, the Asian American Cultural Center, the La Casa Latino Cultural Center, and the Native American Cultural Center. Each PL program is run differently, but all are designed to help first-years feel supported and integrated into the Yale College community.
