Professionalism Early Intervention and Referral System (PEIRS)

Contact information:

The PEIRS program has been initiated by the Office of Student Affairs in early 2015. The aim of the program is to provide just-in-time guidance and support to students confronted with situations that can be labelled as breach of professionalism, and before such issues reach the governing bodies or can threaten the academic progress of the student. Such situations can include, but are not limited to: late arrival for exams, missing appointments, absenteeism, inadequate attitude or behavior towards peers, faculty or staff etc. The goal is to find the underlying causes of problems in which students find themselves, identify patterns, and offer the most appropriate guidance in order to prevent further escalation of problems.

Students can self-refer to this program, or can be referred by faculty or staff. In some cases, and if needed, students can be further referred to other supporting structures within WFSM (e.g. EARS, Student Counseling & Wellness Services) for correctly addressing all concerns.
