Be That Friend

Be That Friend is a student-led positive social norms campaign that encourages and empowers students to provide support for and recommend resources to peers who may have experienced gender-based violence. The year-long campaign involves mass materials distribution, social media messaging, peer-to-peer conversations, interdepartmental events, skill-building workshops, and student surveys.

Register for our Be That Friend Workshop!

Students who experience sexual violence are most likely to turn to a friend for help. This workshop will teach participants how to Be That Friend who...

  • Provides trauma-informed support,
  • Speaks out to prevent violence, and
  • Knows campus and community resources

One participant will walk away with a SURPRISE GIFT!

This workshop will be held on Thursday, October 13 from 12-1:30pm in Union 3203.
