    I became a peer educator because I wanted to help educate our campus on the importance of integrity in both academics and professionalism. I wanted to be part of something that encouraged students and faculty to discover their core values and role on our campus by excelling with integrity. The best part of being a peer educator has been having the opportunity to help students learn about academic integrity and help them navigate through their college career by being a resource to them. Interacting with different students that come through our office really has helped me learn how to reach out and help different communities throughout campus.

    I decided to become a Peer Educator for a few reasons: I wanted to get involved my first year, I thought Academic Integrity was important and it gave me an opportunity to gain experience (I was a Psychology major). Even though I decided to change my major, I stayed in the office because spreading a culture of integrity and values became much more important to me than when I had started. I have also met amazing people throughout my time in the Academic Integrity Office. Most of all, I can say that being an Academic Integrity Peer Educator has helped me reflect on my own values and ethics in life to become a better person within the academic, professional, and personal spheres.

    I chose to be a Peer Educator because it mimics the Board of Pharmacy in the real world. There will come a time when one pharmacist out there will slip up (be it he stole drugs/he was lax in his security/or other unlawful things like falsify documents/insurance fraud) and then be sent to the Board of Pharmacy where a panel of Judge which consist of other pharmacists/colleagues who will review his case and determine his sanction including the possibility of losing their license. Basically there is much similarity between Board of Pharmacy and reviewing pharmacists case vs AIRB and peer education vs student cheating. This analogous experience will be useful in dealing with these kinds of situations and to gain self awareness.

    I joined the Academic Integrity Peer Educator team because I went through seminar and it made me think seriously about all the ethical decisions we make every day. I liked how I was constantly challenging myself to make the right decision for me, and being a peer educator reminds me of that.
