Certified Peer Educators



The purpose of the FSL Certified Peer Education Program is to provide the fraternity and sorority community with peer support, education, and awareness about issues that are of concern to college students. Peer Educators will use prevention education strategies to challenge students to make informed, responsible decisions regarding their health.

The FSL Certified Peer Educators strive to host monthly events to educate the fraternity and sorority community. Our events include topics regarding academic performance, challenging the fraternity/sorority stereotype, hazing prevention, alcohol awareness, healthy relationships, nutrition/exercising/stress management, sexual assault awareness, and many more.



All Certified Peer Educators go through a 12-hour training to become a peer educator. The training is an eight-module course through NASPA and the BACCHUS Network. This training covers the following topics:

  1. Understanding the Power, Roles, and Characteristics of Quality Peer Educators
  2. Affecting and Understanding “Change Making” as a Peer Educator
  3. Being an Effective Listener as a Peer Educator
  4. A Peer Educator’s Role in Responding to Crisis

  6. Intrapersonal Applications of Identity as a Peer Educator
  7. Putting the “Educator” in Peer Educator
  8. Group Development and Moving Forward
