Peer-to-Peer Leadership Programs

The peer-to-peer model empowers students to collaborate, make meaningful connections, and develop leadership within their communities. 

The peer-to-peer model is one way staff within Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion advance the work of fostering inclusion and belonging at Harvard College. We believe this peer-to-peer model empowers our student interns by offering them professional development skills, opportunities for cross collaboration, and meaningful connections among their community of peers. The benefit for our larger student community is to have the opportunity to engage in critical discussions, and meaningful connections with their peers.

Diversity Peer Educators (DPEs)

DPE interns sitting

DPEs are trained student facilitators who utilize their passion for inclusion, intersectionality, and social justice to help create a better Harvard community. Through dialogue DPEs center student voices and help develop brave spaces where students can show up for each other, share their identities and connect through both commonality and difference.
