Created in 2014 in conjunction with the Academy of Leadership Development,

the CES peer leader program is one of several Academy peer leader iterations.

CES Peer Leaders serve as campus ambassadors for CES and work to promote a culture of informed engagement for their peers through service, education, and advocacy.
