In 2015 West Virginia University signed onto the national It's On Us campaign to continue violence prevention efforts and reinforce Mountaineers' rights under Title IX. Under the It's On Us campaign, the University coordinates the WVU Peer Advocate program. Through this initiative, expertly trained students work to end sexual assault and power-based personal violence on campus through immediate crisis intervention and prevention awareness events. In addition to the training provided by the course, students complete 60 service hours to go towards the University’s Million Hour Match.
If you would like to become a WVU Peer Advocate, the University is hosting a 3-credit service learning course this semester on Mondays from 6:00-8:50 pm. The course is SRVL 493D Special Topics: Sexual Assault Advocate, and the CRN is 88782. Any student is welcome and encouraged to join this course to become a WVU Peer Advocate. For more information, please contact either Mariana Matthews at firstname.lastname@example.org or Brooke Bailey at BaBailey@mail.wvu.edu.
It’s On Us to keep our Mountaineer family safe.
