Five UALR students attended 9 hours of training during the spring semester and became certified as UALR Peer Educators.
Seven certified Peer Educators and Vanessa Lewis, advisor, attended the annual Bacchus conference in Kansas City, MO. Bacchus supports collegiate peer educators and advisors by empowering students and student affairs administrators to create campus environments which are healthy and safe.
At the conference, Peer Leaders learned about C.A.R.E. (Connect, Accept, Respect, Empower), a program designed to support LGBTQ students. They also were trained to present a program entitled, Are You Talking to Me: How to Communicate Effectively with All Individuals. Both were added to the Fall 2015 Trojan Talk program schedule and will be presented in the residence hall.
