What is a Peer Leader?
What do Peer Leaders do?
Even though Peer Leaders have a wide variety of roles and responsibilities, we hope all Peer Leaders are equipped to:
- Offer quality service as they prioritize relationships, resourcefulness, and well-being in their interactions with others.
- Cultivate inclusive environments where everyone feels and is welcome to belong.
- Exercise self-confidence in their growing abilities to lead, solve problems, think critically, and excel as a student and leader at VCU.
- Make connections between their lived experiences and their education to prepare for a fruitful future long after their Peer Leader experience.
What does Peer Leadership offer to students?
In every Peer Leader role, VCU students can gain practical skills and experiences that make an impact in our community. By being trained and gaining valuable insights about themselves, their passions, and how they work, Peer Leaders become better prepared to take on new challenges, including many that face them in the job market and in their life after VCU.
