With the University Health Center's Peer Education Program undergraduate students earn credit to educate the campus community about wellness through one of four topic-specific lenses (substance use, sexual health, mental health, or power-based violence). Peers have opportunities to turn their innovative ideas into action.
Being a peer educator is a great opportunity to get hands-on experience working directly with students, improve your public speaking and program planning skills, and join a group of talented, creative, dedicated students like you who are committed to our mission of wellness for all at UMD
What do Peer Educators do?
- Presentations and Workshops
- Step UP Presentations
- Campus Outreach
- And so much more!
Peer Educators should expect to commit to an average of 3-5 hours each week (including class time).
