Peer Educator Training Helps Webster Staff Prepare Student Leaders
Webster staff from seven departments took this training to help them prepare student leaders to be curators of change.

Webster University staff members from seven departments attended a NASPA Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education Certified Peer Educator (CPE) "train the trainer" facilitation Aug. 1 on the Webster Groves campus. 

The CPE training helps train students toward the development of leadership skills so that they are more comfortable in engaging with their peers around important topics. CPE training is designed to help empower and develop our student leaders to be curators of change and support systems for their peers. 

Staff members were guided through nine modules covering bystander intervention, effective listening, crisis management, response and referral and much more.

Once trained, Webster students will be more equipped to positivity affect their fellow students in dynamic ways. Training such as this will be integrated into Residential Assistant Training, Peer Mentor/Connection Leader Training, Student Athlete Mentor Training, and much more.
