The BACCHUS Initiatives of NASPA Regional Conference is a great opportunity for your peer education group to: 

  • Get new program ideas on a variety of health & wellness issues relevant to working with college students 
  • Gain new knowledge and skills to support your peer education efforts 
  • Network with other peer educators & advisors from across the region
  • Learn how to revitalize, recruit and reenergize your organization
  • Learn more about how the BACCHUS Initiatives of NASPA can support your efforts

There are numerous opportunities for student and advisor networking throughout the conference experience, both social and educational.  At this regional conference, peer educators gain the opportunity to connect with other peer educators in their own backyard, while advisors gain valuable time to discuss collaborative prospects for education and creating change across campuses. Whether you are able to bring your entire peer education group or just yourself, this experience is an incredible and rewarding opportunity to build and support our collective efforts in prevention and education.
