Health Peer Educators, known as PEEPs, are student leaders committed to empowering and educating their peers to live balanced, healthy lives. 

PEEPs serve as role models through responsible decision-making, serve as resources for their peers in residence halls and throughout the campus and create innovative and educational programming and events to help their fellow students think critically about health and wellness issues. 

PEEPs are advised by CC Curtiss, director of the Office of Student Wellness and Alcohol and Other Drug Education, with support from the associate dean of student life, director of student health services and the director of counseling services.

Topics addressed by PEEPs

  • Stress reduction
  • Sleep strategies
  • Alcohol and other drugs
  • Tobacco
  • Sexual health
  • Sexual respect, sexual misconduct and sexual assault
  • Nutrition, eating disorders, and body image
  • Taking charge of your own health
  • Fitness
  • Sports performance

Get involved!

Applications to the peer education program are accepted 365 days a year! Connecticut College students who are passionate about making a difference on our campus are encouraged to apply.
