Peer Education

Becoming a peer educator is a great way to get involved on campus, strengthen public speaking skills with presentations, and make new friends. It gives students the opportunity to learn from other students as well. There are 2 ways in which you can become a peer educator, read below to learn more. 

Get Involved

The peer education program strives to promote all aspects of wellness by raising awareness and knowledge about healthier living through outreach and role modeling. The primary goal is to develop fun, interactive, and educational programs that reach the entire BGSU community.

Peer educators present on various wellness topics, including nutrition, alcohol and other drugs and sexual health. Become a member and find out what peer education is about!
