If student are having difficulties communicating with their professors we interfere and help them gain a better communication. Students try to get help from professors and we help them gain that relationship. • The peer advisors and the rest of the CAMP staff understand what our values are and how to leave biases aside. We understand that we will have different points of views with the students and we don’t let that interfere with how we deliver our services. • Students have the right to confidentiality. Any thing that has been said by the students must remain in the agency and must be shared only among the staff.
