Get Involved

Tulane University is committed to stopping all sexual violence and students are an integral part of that process. What can you do to positively impact campus culture? There are many options like attending a workshop, taking a class, or becoming a peer educator or volunteer. You can get involved in whatever way you think is best for you. 

 
 

Attend a workshop

This involvement is a one-time event, but the knowledge and skills gained have lasting effects that ultimately create a campus culture where all sexual violence is unacceptable. 

One Wave Bystander Intervention

One Wave is Tulane's bystander intervention initiative designed to equip our community with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to intervene in situations that involve, or have the potential to involve sexual assault. One Wave empowers each Tulanian to proactively and outwardly support norms and actions that protect from violence. Attend a 1-hour, student-led workshop to learn how to keep our peers and communities safe from sexual violence. 

Live Well Series

Participate in the Live Well Series, a menu of different workshops and trainings on a variety of health topics including sexual health, bystander behavior, alcohol misuse prevention, and self-care.

Join a student group or organization

This involvement is typically more time intensive. There are multiple student groups dedicated to stopping sexual violence and creating safer Tulane communities.

Sexual Aggression Peer Hotline & Education (SAPHE)

SAPHE is a Tulane University student organization devoted to providing outreach, education, and advocacy regarding the issue of sexual aggression. Our members run a 24/7 confidential hotline, which works to support Tulane community members affected by sexual aggression by providing a listening ear and information about resources.

Tulane University Peer Health Educators (TUPHEs)

TUPHEs are a diverse group of Tulane students who are committed to enhancing their own health and the health of the Tulane community. The purpose of the program is to advocate for and promote healthy choices, personal wellbeing, and community safety. Through leadership, education, and awareness, peer educators provide innovative and inclusive workshops, services, and events to meet the health needs of Tulane students.

Community Engagement Advocates (CEAs)

CEAs are student leaders trained to facilitate dialogues around issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. These interactive workshops are designed to create brave spaces for students to explore a wide range of topics including: race, class, gender, sexuality, able-ism, religion, and community engagement. The CEA program works to foster a campus culture of inclusion, equity and, empathy to prepare students to navigate some of society’s most pressing challenges related to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

One Love

One Love is a national healthy-relationship foundation founded in honor of Yeardley Love, a senior lacrosse player at University of Virginia who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend. One Love aims to educate and raise awareness about all types of relationship abuses in varying relationships. The peer-facilitated workshops engage students to provide helpful resources to help prevent dangerous situations.

The Conduct Peer Advisory Council (CPAC)

CPAC is student volunteers who serve Tulane University in a number of ways, including sitting on a hearing board and appeals as a voting panel member, reviewing university policies, and facilitating our Integrity @ Tulane sanctioned workshop.
