You are here : Peer Education
Waynesburg University recognizes the value of peers learning from one another. We offer a certification program to students who are interested in more formally sharing their knowledge and skills with others. Certified peer educators perform many important functions on campus. They present information to student groups about numerous health-related topics such as alcohol and drug awareness, healthy relationships, sexual assault issues, eating disorders, and other topics relevant to student life. Peer educators are also trained to listen and make appropriate referrals for students who may be experiencing these or other concerns.
Our Peer Educators tend to be active students, well involved in campus life. They are generally referred to the program by staff or faculty who recognize their talents.
If you are interested in becoming a Peer Educator, would like to request a Peer Education program for a class or student group, or would like to refer a student, contact the group advisor, Mary Hamilla, in the Counseling Center at (724) 852-3344 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
