Peer Mediation

Help your friends and fellow students solve their problems peacefully!

Peer Mediation is a program that teaches students an alternative set of skills they can apply in conflict situations.

In mediation, a third-party student mediator helps other students to come to a win-win resolution without taking sides. Student mediators are taught a process of communication and problem-solving that they apply to help their peers reach settlements of their disagreements without confrontation or violence. They also learn that conflict can be constructive and positive.

If you are a student and you are a good listener, care about others, and are sensitive to the feelings of others, you may want to consider becoming a student mediator.

To become a student mediator, a student must complete an application, which includes a letter of recommendation and a resume. They will also be interviewed. If accepted into the program, they must take an 8-hour course which is offered in the fall and spring.

The Department of Student Activities oversees the Peer Mediation Program at VSU. For more information or an application, students may email, visit Room 401, Foster Hall, or click on one of the links below:
