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.
