For Future UST 1000 Peer Leaders

I wanted to be a Seminar TA to encourage students to embrace themselves by staying true to their personality, seeking out their interests, and developing their strengths. –Kate Murner, UMD Seminar TA

How do I become a UST 1000 Peer Leader?

Students who have successfully completed the UST 1000: Learning in Community course are eligible to become a UST 1000 Peer Leader. Interested students register for a semester-long 1-credit training course (SSP 3005) during spring semester. Upon successful completion of the course and after going through the selection process, those chosen to be Peer Leaders are assigned a section of the UST 1000 course for the following fall semester. Peer Leaders work closely with the instructor of the class and register for SSP 3006 during the semester in which they work with UST 1000 students. If you are interested in being a UST 1000 Peer Leader, contact the Academic Writing and Learning Center at 218-726-8944 (
