It's On Us

Peer-Education training Program

Sexual Assault Awareness & Consent

This is the foundational workshop of the It’s On Us core prevention programs. The content of this program can be used by student peer-educators to create shared, baseline knowledge with their classmates through either direct instruction or the implementation of large-scale awareness events. The subsequent programs build on the knowledge students gain through interactions with the learning objectives of this workshop.

Students who complete this program will be able to:

  • Understand the scope of the problem of campus sexual assault and dating violence. 
  • Define what behaviors/actions constitute sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. 
  • Define consent (verbal and non-verbal) and understand situations in which consent cannot be given. 
  • Be aware of the federal laws that offer protections for students who have experienced some form of sexual harm. 
  • Be conscious of the long-term impacts sexual assault can have on someone’s mental and physical health. 
  • Be prepared to serve as peer-educators on this program within their campus communities.
