Student Involvement

There are a number of ways that students can get involved with the Sexual Violence Prevention Project that range based on a student's area of interest, skills, and time commitment.

Student Advisory Board

The Student Advisory Board assists in the ongoing development and implementation of the Sexual Violence Prevention Project by:

  • contributing their ideas and opinions and representing their peer groups' voices (like an undergraduate Think Tank)
  • using Design Thinking methodology to help guide implementation
  • helping disseminate information about SVPP to their peers
  • participating in focus groups and program pilots

Members work approximately 2-3 hours per week (compensation provided), including interviewing members of their communities and actively participating in working meetings.

Over the summer, students will participate in training to develop and improve their public speaking, facilitation, and communication skills. In the fall and winter, facilitators will deliver programs to first-year students.

Through this role, Student Facilitators will spend a great deal of time interacting with and mentoring first-year students and will be campus culture change agents.

  • Learn content knowledge around sexual violence; on- and off-campus resources & support services; healthy relationships & sexual health; identity, power and privilege; and bystander intervention


Student Internships

Student internships provide undergraduate students the opportunity to work closely with the professional staff on the Project Team and immerse themselves more fully into one particular aspect of the Project. Internships may range from 5-40 hours/week depending on Project needs and student interest, with both paid and volunteer options available. For inquiries about available opportunities email SVPP.

Surveys & Focus Groups

In order to design and deliver worthwhile and effective experiences, we need student input! By participating in surveys and focus groups with content pertaining to SVPP's focus areas, students play an integral part in the design and development of the overall Project. These opportunities include campus-wide surveys about Orientation & Residential Life, the Dartmouth Health Survey, the Sexual Misconduct Climate Survey, pre- and post surveys for programs like DBI and MAV, Pulse surveys, and focus groups sponsored by the Student Wellness Center.
