About Trojan Outreach 

Mission Statement: Trojan Outreach is a peer-led education organization within Troy University's Student Services division. These students are committed to promoting and influencing a culture that is focused on health, wellness and safety by empowering and engaging the campus community to make healthy decisions.

Trojan Outreach is comprised of 2 groups of student leaders, peer educators and peer mentors. Both strive to engage with students by hosting events, delivering programming and presentations, and serving as role models of health and wellness. Peer mentors are available to meet with students one-on-one to provide support for issues related to adjusting to college and other common issues that impact students.

All outreach presentations are conducted by peer educators, unless otherwise requested. All programs last approximately 45 minutes, unless otherwise stated. To request a program, please complete the “Request a Program” form at least 2 weeks before your event/class.
