Peer Assisted Study Sessions

The University of Mary Washington has been awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), STEM Talent Expansion through Research, Engagement, Preparation and Scholarships (STEREPS).  The purpose of STEREPS is to build upon and enhance current University programs and initiatives that promote diversity and STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) education.

One component of STEREPS is the PASS program:

PASS (Peer-Assisted Study Session) is a series of weekly review sessions for students taking historically difficult courses. PASS is provided for all students who want to improve their understanding of course material and improve their grades. For students, it’s a chance to get together with people in your class to compare notes, to discuss important concepts, to develop strategies for studying the subject and to test yourselves before your professor does, so that when he/she does, you’ll be ready. At each session, students will be guided through this material by your PASS Leader, a competent student who has previously taken the course.
