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 firstname.lastname@example.org or email Christina Sargiss, the Program Assistant for Health and Wellness, at email@example.com
