The staff in Outreach Education foster students' academic and personal success by increasing discussion, examining issues and exploring the underlying contexts of key health behaviors. Our aim is to support and encourage the university community and individual students to think critically about healthy decision-making.
Our objective is to prepare individuals and groups to take meaningful action to reduce negative, and increase positive, health-related behavior. This objective is accomplished through individual consultation, prevention efforts, and educational outreach to the university community.

The mission of the BSU Peer Educators is to empower students to make informed decisions with regard to alcohol, drugs and related health and social issues. The Peer Educators, selected through an interview process, receive training to educate other BSU students. They provide engaging inclusive and informative events, workshops, and awareness campaigns around issues faced by BSU students, serving to connect students to university and community resources.
In addition to special event programming, Peer Educators provide programs on request to the campus community. Programs have been conducted for BSU student clubs and organizations, athletic teams, commuters and resident students.
Alcohol Edu Required Alcohol Education Course
All new incoming enrolled BSU students are required to complete the Alcohol Edu online program. The course has two parts, Part 1 is generally due before the end of August and Part 2 is generally due before the end of September. Part 1 takes about 1 hour to complete. There is a 30-day wait period after completing Part 1, before getting access to Part 2. Part 2 takes about 20 minutes to complete. Instructions are generally sent to students' BSU email accounts at the end of July. Failure to pass Part 1 with a 70% or better and complete Part 2 will result in a hold being placed on the student account, which will prevent future class registration, until the course is completed.
