SGA Joint Sexual Violence Advisory Committee
This is an inclusive and diverse SGA-led student subcommittee, formed as a branch of the Sexual Violence Prevention Alliance (SVPA),as a result of the Presidential Task Force on Sexual Violence recommendations. This subcommittee serves as the eyes and ears on the ground about what is happening on campus with regard to sexual violence and related policies, and the subcommittee should be able to easily connect with senior administration, faculty, and staff to ensure that the recommendations of the Presidential Task Force on Sexual Violence are made a priority. For more information about this committee and how to join, contact the SVPA Committee chair.
Every fall semester, VOICE trains a new cohort of Peer Educators, a diverse group of dedicated students trained to educate other students on issues related to sexual violence prevention and survivor support.
