NASPA Peer Education Advisors Institute

Workshop Health, Safety, and Well-being Alcohol and Other Drug Health, Safety, and Well-being Initiatives Sexual and Relationship Violence Prevention, Education, and Response Wellness and Health Promotion Mid-Level New Professional

The role of a collegiate peer health education advisor is complex, ever changing, and sometimes poorly defined. In the past there has not been a handbook, training, or manual when it comes to working with peer health education groups. There is also not one prescribed way to implement peer education on campus since each campus is unique.


The Peer Education Advisors Institute is intended for both newer professionals, as well as those that have years of advising experience. While some of the workshops will be focused on pre-planned topics such as ethics and boundaries, marketing, and building collaboration across campus, much of the content will focus on the needs of the attendees through facilitated discussions. Additionally, attendees will be given access to a handbook with reflection activities to assist in their learning. Whether attendees come from a public health, student affairs, counseling, or other background, this institute will provide the foundation and go deeper into what every peer education advisor needs to be successful.


Prior to attending Advisor Institute, all attendees will be required to complete Advisor Academy so that each attendee will have common language and collective knowledge. The content from the Advisor Academy will give attendees baseline knowledge and prepare them for participation in the institute. Participants will also be given an Advisor Academy specific workbook that follows along with the modules. Content covered in the Advisor Academy includes:

  • Models of peer education
  • General concepts, definitions, and theories for peer education advising
  • Recruitment, retention, and training models
  • Budgeting
  • Supervisory and leadership styles
  • How to hold student-leaders accountable
  • Obtaining and sustaining resources for your peer education group
  • Student development and learning outcomes
  • Assessment and evaluation
