The SVPP Student Advisory Board (SAB) is a core group of undergraduate students who function as both a Think Tank and Design Team. The SAB uses a human-centered design process and plays a vital role in bringing student voices and experiences to aid in the development, design, and implementation of Dartmouth's Sexual Violence Prevention Project.
- Participate in focus groups and pilots
- Contribute their own insights and experiences
- Interview peers to bring their insights and experiences back to the group
- Use Human-Centered Design and Design Thinking methodology to develop and test prototypes to help guide implementation
- Disseminate information about SVPP to their peers

Application & Skills
Students applying to be on the Student Advisory Board are NOT expected to have any prior knowledge or experience in sexual violence prevention. The board represents students at Dartmouth and guides the design and implementation of the SVPP. It is intended to be made up of a diverse range of students from all backgrounds, experiences, and beliefs to best represent the ideas and experiences of Dartmouth students. This allows us to design and implement the SVPP in the most effective and student-centered way.
