P.E.E.R. Leadership Course Preview
P.E.E.R. Leadership is based on the student leadership development principles of personal development and experiential training. Development requires an environment which empowers students to mature and develop toward greater levels of leadership complexity, integration, and proficiency over a period of time. Training involves those activities designed to help students translate some newly learned skill, or information, to a real and immediate situation. Classes are interactive; students learn through reflection, discussion, and personal inventories. Students also take a critical look at their personal development and leadership experiences to understand where they are in the context of student development theories and models. Ultimately, students become more prepared to take on a variety of leadership roles and develop plans related to their future interests and opportunities.
