The Center offers paid social justice peer educator positions. A social justice peer educator at the Center is a paid position that works to create an inclusive campus at CU Boulder. Peer educators work to create an inclusive campus community by co-designing dynamic and interactive presentations on relevent social justice topics. Presentations topics include LGBTQ+ inclusion, interrupting sexism and intersectionality. In additional to expanding understanding about social justice matters, peer educators develop social media content and video story telling to help broaden educational reach.
