The Ethics of Peer Mentoring

Wednesday, April 13, 2016 | 7:00 P.M. - 8:00 P.M EST 


An ethical framework helps peer leaders effectively navigate and solve difficult problems.

Learning Objective

Peer leaders (mentors, educators and advisers) will be able to apply an ethical framework to problems that arise in their roles as peer mentors.


Peer mentors have to make ethical decisions on a regular basis. As students themselves, many mentors do not yet have the framework or skills to make these decisions confidently and successfully.  When mentors struggle with the ethics of a position, it can affect them and their mentees negatively. Be sure your students have the background and practice to navigate difficult ethical dilemmas.

In this webinar, students will learn how to:

  •  Apply an ethical framework to problems
  • Consider the ethics specific to the peer mentor role
  • Differentiate between ethical and legal scenarios
  • Practice applying their knowledge to sample scenarios

This interactive webinar provides opportunities to engage in reflection, discussion, and role-playing. After the webinar, you will receive a 30-minute follow-up role-playing activity to help students apply the webinar's concepts.
