Peer Education Internships
Peer Education Interns are students leaders who promote healthy behaviors at KSC. Our team consists of undergraduate interns from the Health Science and Graphic Design Departments. Our interns are Nationally Certified Peer Educators through The BACCHUS Network, a peer education initiative through NASPA Students Affairs Professionals in Higher Education. The BACCHUS Network supports academic and personal success by building skills in student leaders to address campus health and safety issues. CPEs encourage students to make healthy choices, become active leaders, and engaged citizens in the community.
