Peer educators are leaders, role models and teachers. The peer education experience gives students the chance to educate their peers about the importance of making healthy decisions, and helps them to gain public speaking skills, increase confidence, build rapport with classmates and faculty, and take on an important leadership role on campus and in the community.
There are number of workshops and events that each of the Peer Educator programs present each year.
Peer educators get involved with campus outreach through classroom presentations and work with various organizations, including:
