SAPEC utilizes the Social Ecological Model in its approach to sexual violence prevention, focusing prevention efforts at the individual, relationship, community, and society levels. These efforts would not be possible without taking a community-based approach to education. For this reason, SAPEC is always looking for undergraduate students, graduate students, campus administrators, community members, and faculty that would like to assist in the efforts to end sexual violence within the University of Kansas community.
Peer Education Program
The Peer Education Program is a student-based SAPEC volunteer program that works to educate the campus community on the issue of sexual violence. Peer educators provide educational workshops on the issues of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, sexual harassment, and stalking to the University of Kansas community. Peer educators are trained to educate, facilitate discussions, and provide resources for students in classrooms, fraternities and sororities, residence halls, and student organizations and clubs. The goal of this program is to increase awareness and knowledge of issues related to sexual violence. Each of our workshops can be presented either as interactive, small-group discussions or as lecture-style, PowerPoint presentations that may be better suited for larger groups.
