Peer Educators About the Peer Educators

Peer Educators are students deeply interested in dedicating spaces to educating students about healthy relationships, creating conversations about gender roles and socialization, and shifting cultural norms that perpetuate sexual and dating violence on campus. They serve in a formal role providing education and resources to the USD community, and are housed in USD’s Women’s Center.

Peer Educators are required to attend an initial 2-day training session at the beginning of the semester and will participate in on-going training and continuing education throughout the semester. The Peer Educator positions are semester-long appointments with opportunity for extensions and preference given to those interested in at least two semesters of service. The role requires an average of 4-6 hours of work per week including but not limited to outreach, marketing, peer advising, peer facilitation, presenting, tabling, and administrative tasks.
