Sexual Assault Peer Alliance (SAPAs)

Sexual Assault Peer Alliance (SAPA) is a COSO-recognized group of Dartmouth students invested in providing informed, empathic, and empowerment-based support to Dartmouth peers impacted by sexual and gender-based violence.

SAPA Training

To be a SAPA, students must complete approximately 40 hours of training. This training equips students with specialized knowledge in gender-based violence, the impact of such violence, campus resources, and skills for providing positive, peer support to fellow students. SAPA training is facilitated by Counseling Center clinicians and features other expert guest speakers. Training is typically offered at least once per academic year. For more information about training and when it is being offered, email
