The Peer Educators are available to do educational programs related to alcohol use, sexual assault, and suicide prevention. Peer Educators are student volunteers who work with the counselors to develop and present programs such as interactive presentations, discussions, games, tabling events, and informational materials with the goal of increasing Cornell students’ knowledge and effective decision-making in various areas of mental health and wellness.
