Diversity Peer Educator Program

The mission of the Diversity Peer Education Program is to help create a learning environment that celebrates diversity, builds partnerships, and provides support to enhance the success of an inclusive and culturally respectful university campus. The Diversity Peer Education Program strives to promote experiences characterized by open communication that deepens understanding of culture and heritage, promote respect for commonalities and differences in historical and cultural contexts, encourage civic and social responsibility within our communities, and to help make the campus a welcoming place for everyone.

Mission Statement:

The Diversity Peer Educators are diverse student leaders who contribute to the goal of an inclusive campus community by educating and advocating for issues of diversity and inclusion among their peers by helping to create a learning environment that celebrates diversity.

Vision:

The Diversity Peer Educators will promote an intellectual co-curricular experience characterized by open communication that deepens understanding of diversity, difference, privilege, and promotes respect for commonalities and differences in historical and cultural contexts, and to encourage civic and social responsibility within our campus community.

Primary Goal:

The Diversity Peer Educators will facilitate discussions with their peers about cultural awareness, diversity and inclusion in an effort to create a more inclusive campus community. (Ice breakers, Team Builders and Diversity Activities)

Objectives:

Commit to helping their peers to gain insights, value, diversity, and take actions by:

  • Creating additional opportunities to discuss diversity on campus
  • Increasing appreciation of differences
  • Limiting the influence of stereotypes or single stories
  • Understanding the impact that their behaviors have on others
