Peer Institute

Each year the TCNJ Alcohol & Drug Education Program (ADEP) and the NJ Division of Highway Traffic Safety host the Peer Institute. Typically the Peer Institute is a three-day conference for college peer educators from across the state & it gives them the opportunity to become nationally certified peer educators through the NASPA CPE Training. Students also view a presentation from a keynote speaker, participate in social activities and icebreakers, and present to local high school students.

Due to COVID-19 we, unfortunately, had to cancel our in-person conference but we did not let this stop us from hosting a Virtual Peer Institute! This summer we created a digital experience for college students and they were still able to become nationally certified peer educators, view a video from our keynote speaker, participate in giveaways, and much more!

If you have any questions about the Peer Institute please email us at or email Christina Sargiss, the Program Assistant for Health and Wellness, at
