Enhance your student experience while building your leadership skills.

The Capilano University Peer Leadership Program is a community of likeminded individuals who share an interest of becoming leaders on campus.

Peer leaders engage with and help other students in meaningful ways. This can include mentorship, organizing events, facilitating workshops, and providing information and academic support.

Peer leaders are trained to:

  • Make referrals when appropriate
  • Provide support
  • Listen with empathy
  • Help with decision-making
  • Provide problem-solving assistance

It is important that our peer leaders are matched with a program that suits their interests and skills.  Many of our departments on campus offer peer leadership opportunities and we suggest finding one that suits you best.
