Peer Learning Partnership

peer learning partnership plp courses

The Peer Learning Partnership (PLP) is:

  • A community of peers organized to develop opportunities for intellectual development, cultural stimulation, personal growth and social interaction in an academic setting.
  • Members manage the program and volunteer their time, skills, and talents to gain and share knowledge of subjects that may not be conveniently available in academic or social institutions.
  • Using a seminar or workshop format for learning, the PLP provides an interactive setting in which members can volunteer as facilitators.  There are no academic requirements for membership and anyone 16 or older is welcome.
