The ESU Peer Educators are a diverse group of students who are trained to provide educational programs and outreach on responsible student decision-making.

Topics include health, wellness, and safety including alcohol, drugs, sexual health and violence. Peer Education provides a way for students to talk to other students about lifestyle choices with the goal of harm reduction, which reduces negative consequences of health behaviors.
