Peer education is well established as an effective means of supporting first-year students in their transition to the university experience (Shook & Keup, 2012) (Esplin, Seabold, & Pinegar 2012). In large part, the success of peer education programs depends on the selection of peer educators, but very little research has been conducted to investigate how specific pre-requisites correlate to peer educator success. This project seeks to understand the correlation between the five pre-requisites for peer educator selection identified by Terrion and Leonard (2007) and peer educator success within the First-year mentoring program at Brigham Young University.
