This study examined the relationship between peer leader involvement and academic success outcomes in the United States. Results are based on the 2013 administration of the National Survey of Peer Leaders conducted at 49 institutions of higher education in the United States. Findings show that academic peer leadership experience was a strong, positive predictor of self-reported academic performance. The total number of peer leader experiences was also a positive, yet weak, predictor of academic success.
