Cultivating these relationships is an important responsibility and it requires awareness, skills, and technique.

It's an ongoing exercise in demonstrating social skills and an interest in the success of others. It involves recognizing the role each person serves and building collaborative relationships with a diverse network of your peers who support you as you support them. This course explores how to leverage social and communication skills in building peer relationships. And it demonstrates how to build peer support networks and how to collaborate with peers toward a common goal.
