Peer Equity and Resource Educator (PERE)
A Peer Equity and Resource Educator (PERE) engages students in building an inclusive community with one-time and on-going opportunities on behalf of the Diversity Engagement Center (DEC). Students reflect on and share their own experiences while learning from others and their different perspectives. Peer Equity and Resource Educators foster intercultural communication skills, identity development, and ally-ship. PEREs organize bi-weekly programs and socials as well as coordinate the cultural graduate celebration. Committed to inclusive excellence and trained in facilitation, PEREs are students who run many of the following programs:
- Sundae’s on Thursday: A monthly social program designed to bring campus partners and community together.
- Cultural Cafe: A student-organized activity and dialogue series for the UNO community
- Digital Passives: Passive information sharing in a digital format around current issues and topics
- #LetsUnpackThat: Workshops that explore hot button issues with engaging activities and open dialogue designed to empower students through education on issues of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion, and their intersections.
