Certified HEART Peer Educators are available to facilitate the programs described below during the Fall & Spring semesters.

You may request any of these programs for your student organization, residence hall, or class.

Someone will confirm your submission within two or three business days. We appreciate your patience and understanding! 
  • Peer-Facilitated Programs are scheduled during the Fall and Spring semesters and require two weeks' notice to coordinate with student peer educators.

Beyond Yes & No: Building A Culture of Consent 
How would we feel living in a world where all boundaries are honored? Where we could feel safe and affirmed? This workshop will explore how we can move past a transactional or "Yes / No" framework of consent and how we can begin to work toward a culture of consent.

Let's Talk About Alcohol
This program is designed to help students explore why they choose to (or not to) drink. Through a series of games and activities, students will learn about ways to keep themselves and their fellow Owls safe when alcohol is in the mix!

Owl About Self-Care
What is self-care? This program takes a deeper dive into how a proactive and regular practice of self-care can help manage stress. We’ll take a look at the different aspects that can make up self-care and spend time creating individualized self-care plans.

Owl About Stress
Stress isn’t all bad! Some stress provides opportunities for growth and learning. This program empowers students to reframe how they think about stress by learning how stress affects the mind and body.

Owls Stop Stigma
This program explores origins of mental health stigma, how students can identify and support friends who may be struggling, and how each individual can be an agent of change in reducing stigma. Help cultivate a community that cares.
Sex Jeopardy
Play a fun game of Jeopardy that provides information about sexual health myths, STI/STD facts, and healthy sexuality. This program encourages comfort and openness when talking about healthy sexuality in a judgement free environment. 
Take Action, Take Care  
College life includes new experiences and situations that can impact well-being. Students will learn how to support community wellness through positive action. This program will provide students with information about the bystander effect, the difference between emergent and non-emergent situations, and strategies for taking action. Students will also practice applying these strategies to scenarios that focus on topics like mental health, body image, alcohol / drug use, sexual health and sexual assault.
