Editorial Reviews

John O'Connell
This book is particularly relevant for student affairs professionals involved in training, especially for those working on campuses with culturally diverse student populations.
John N. Gardner
This should be a bible for comprehensive peer leader training programs. It is a very helpful tool for those of us training peers to co-teach freshman seminars, providing both an intellectual and practical foundation.
Charles C. Schroeder
Students Helping Students is a comprehensive, practical, and insightful guide to the essentials of effective peer education. It is must reading for any students involved in learning their roles as peer educators.
Susan R. Komives
It's about time higher education devoted more attention to developing the single most powerful group on campus: peers! From residence halls to health centers, this book offers useful skills and applications for peers helping peers. Special kudos for helping peer educators learn about intercultural competence and ethical practices.
Ernest Pascarella
We know from an extensive body of research that college students develop cognitively and emotionally largely from their interactions with other students. Steve Ender and Fred Newton have translated that research evidence into a series of thoughtful interventions and strategies that will enhance the positive impacts of peer interactions. This is an important work that should be on the bookshelf of any student affairs professional.
