The purpose for this project was to develop a Sexual Assault Peer Educator program within the Office of Student Life and Development which will focus on the education of students at Ivy Tech Community College – Central Indiana on the importance of sexual assault. This program would be available to all registered students and offered two times per academic year. This project is significant because incidents of sexual assault tend to be highest among college aged individuals. This training program will address the topics of history, myths and facts, biases, types of sexual assault, and most importantly victim advocacy and the role of peer educators. The training program will provide useful material such as literature, role playing, and presentations to be used for future programs conducted by the Sexual Assault Peer Educators.
