Sexual Assault Peer Education

The sexual assault peer education program at USD is a collaborative effort between the Center for Health and Wellness Promotion, Women’s Center, and Psychology department. This is a very unique program that allows undergraduate students to gain valuable and practical experience in a counseling setting, while providing support and appropriate resources to those impacted by sexual violence. The peer advising program at USD is a graduate school level experience for the select group of students who take part.

* Peers take reasonable steps to preserve an individual’s privacy and protect the confidentiality of information.

To learn more about sexual assault resources available at USD please visit the Campus Assault Resources and Education (CARE) website.  For information on Sexual Misconduct and Relationship Violence Reporting and Response Standards and Protocols at USD, please visit the Student Conduct website.

If you or someone you know has been impacted by sexual assault, exploitation, harassment, and/or partner violence, you can contact a trained CARE Advocate by calling 619-260-2222 or by finding one on the CARE website.
