Emerging Issues and Practices in Peer Education Spring 2011
The role of peer educators in higher education is well established through decades of program development and refinement. Nevertheless, the twenty-first century landscape presents new challenges and new opportunities for peer educators and peer education programs. In this monograph, the authors explore emerging trends for peer educators, placing them squarely at the center of institutional priorities. Innovative new programs, as well as new practices in familiar programs, provide the reader with insights into development, structure and evaluation. Together, the authors provide an in-depth look at strategies, programs, and perspectives that can enhance the experience of the students peer educators serve and enrich the institutions that support them. This is the 133rd volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Student Services. An indispensable resource for vice presidents of student affairs, deans of students, student counselors, and other student services professionals, New Directions for Student Services offers guidelines and programs for aiding students in their total development: emotional, social, physical, and intellectual.
