NULearn is a series of workshops for undergraduates and led by undergraduates, designed to help participants develop insights about learning that can help them maintain academic success.
Workshops are led by Searle Center Peer Mentors who are trained by the Searle Center and who understand potential barriers students face and how to navigate around them successfully.
Workshops are 50 minutes long and address topics such as:
- Making the most of interactions with faculty.
- Staying focused on learning in a competitive environment.
- Becoming a deep learner: Understanding approaches to learning and how they affect your outcomes.
- Preparing for & rebounding from academic setbacks.
- Becoming an active learner even when your classes are not.

Peer mentors facilitate the 50-minute sessions, helping promote discussion, sharing of ideas, and learning among participants.
Peer mentors participate in training before they run workshops, and meet periodically with Searle Center staff to provide feedback on the workshops. In addition, peer mentors participate in public relations and marketing for the program.
