Peer Educators on the UWG campus were established in 2002. In their role, Peer Educators act as student professionals by teaching classes on the Carrollton Campus, in the Carrollton Community and on the Newnan Campus; facilitating speakers; and tabling around campus and at events on a wide range of topics through Health Education. They go through training and testing on topics such as Alcohol, Other Drugs, Sexual Assault Response and Prevention, Sexual Health, Nutrition and Wellness to ensure consistency and accuracy of information presented.
Accomplishments of the Peers & Peer Education:
- Presented at regional and nation BACCHUS Network (formerly known as the BACCHUS and GAMMA Peer Network) meetings
- Presented at the national meeting of the American College Health Association twice
- Awarded “Outstanding Chapter Award” for Best Student Education Program for GA, FL, SC and Puerto Rico – 2006 by the BACCHUS Network
Our Peer Educators are guided by two Graduate Assistants who assist with hosting events and speakers, organizing the peers and creating an efficient work flow environment while learning more about health education.
