Peer Education Program

Peer educators (PEs) are students who are trained to provide educational programs and outreach in areas that are particularly important to NYU students. They personalize the campus environment by providing important services, programs, information, and resources that empower students to have a greater understanding of themselves and their relationships. Peer educators develop trustful, nonjudgmental connections with students in order to support them in reducing risk in their behavioral choices. Peer educators help to measure the mood and tone of NYU students and identify themes to inform outreach and education efforts. Students eligible for the peer educator position are full-time students of at least sophomore standing. Peer Educators may specialize in one or more of the following topic areas through various Student Affairs offices.
