Become a Peer Advocate
Peer Advocates are compassionate, supportive student leaders and empathetic listeners who provide guidance to any campus member dealing with a personal issue of sexual misconduct. Advocates offer one-on-one support for complainants and respondents seeking guidance through policies, procedures, and resources on and off campus.
In addition to offering individual support, Peer Advocates strive to educate the campus about many issues relating to sexual misconduct to help increase awareness and prevent incidents.

Applying to Become a Peer Advocate
Applications will open in Spring 2022. At that time, applicants will be asked to submit an online application and a mentor’s recommendation letter. After receiving both, interviews will be scheduled.
Before applying, it would be great to attend some Peer Advocate events to learn more about what the group does. They will be hosting a variety of events all posted to the events calendar or you can follow them on Instagram at @ucpeeradvocates. The group will host Open Meetings on the first Monday of each month as well.
Peer Advocate Info Sessions
Any interested student should attend at least one info session to learn more before submitting an application. Info Sessions will take place throughout the fall and spring so look out for more information on those.
