Changing Carolina Peer Leaders

Peer Leaders are undergraduate leaders from a variety of backgrounds and academic disciplines who have a passion for wellness and health education. Call 803-777-3656.

Who We Are

Changing Carolina Peer Leaders is a student-run organization that works to educate, advocate for, and engage with peers by connecting students to on-campus resources. Peer Leaders work toward inclusive and diverse programs on sexual health, healthy relationships, mental health, and general wellness to promote health equity for all members of the Carolina community.


What We Do

Peer educators give classroom presentations, design and facilitate campus-wide outreach events, and create health education content for social media based on one of four special interest groups:

  • General Wellness
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Mental Health
  • Sexual Health


Become a Peer Leader

Undergraduate students of all years and academic disciplines are eligible to apply to join the next cohort of Changing Carolina Peer Leaders. Recruitment for new peers runs every fall semester. If accepted into the program, all new peers are required to take HPEB301 (3hr) in the following spring.

Students meet with their SPIG for one hour each week and are expected to attend consistently throughout the semester


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
