Peer Leadership Educators


Peer Leadership Educator Program

Peer Leadership Educators (PLEs) are well-trained and motivated undergraduate students who undertake a formal and organized educational role with their peers.

PLEs are trained through the Office of Leadership and Civic Engagement to create and facilitate workshops to meet your group/class needs.  Two PLEs work together to facilitate the workshop(s) for your class or your group/organization. They will be in contact with you leading up to the workshop to answer any questions and can cater the workshops to any specific needs you may have.

PLEs offer two “Classroom Workshops” designed for instructors who want their students to create and expand on their personal definition of leadership and what it means to be civically engaged.  SPARTAN LEADERSHIP and CIVIC ENGAGEMENT are workshops that empower students to effect positive change in their personal, professional, and academic lives in your class, on campus, and beyond.

PLEs also offer “Foundations Workshops” based on the 8 competencies of the UNCG Leadership Framework. These are the 8 areas that UNCG Student Leaders should strive to master in their time here at the G.  The Foundations Workshops can be requested by instructors for their classroom AND student groups/organizations on campus.

If you would like to request a workshop, please complete this form.
