The Prefect Program trains experienced students to facilitate optional group study sessions in certain courses. Prefects hold sessions two to three times per week, and also provide individual assistance to students who request additional help. Through critical thinking and problem-solving, prefects encourage students to explore their learning within a course.
The Prefect Program’s mission is to:
- Increase student knowledge
- Deepen understanding of course material
- Develop habits of mind and problem-solving approaches unique to a discipline
