Peer Education Training

Peer Education at the College of Charleston is an experiential learning opportunity in which a student serves as a curricular or co-curricular educator for other students. Peer educators receive specific training and ongoing supervision and evaluation from faculty and/or staff. This experience combines two key goals: the holistic development of the peer educators and an enhanced learning experience for their peers.
