What We are Looking for in Peer Educators

We’re looking for people who are a good fit for facilitating discussions about diversity. We do not expect you to be an “expert” in diversity, inclusion and social justice issues – this is why we will meet multiple times in the Spring/Autumn 2019 semesters for training. If you see yourself in any of the items listed below, you may be a great fit for the program!

  • A learning mindset: interest in deepening your understanding of yourself, others and the social systems that relate to diversity and an interest in developing your skills in this role
  • A reflective mindset: interest in exploring how identity, culture and background have influenced the experiences and perspectives of yourself and others
  • An educational mindset: interest in creating an environment that encourages meaningful exchange and willingness to support others in a learning process
