Sexual Health Peer Advisors (Sexperts) serve as campus educational peer advisors. We respond to requests for peer education around issues of healthy relationships, reproductive health, healthy sexuality, sexual identity, body image, sexual orientation, sexual decision making, abstinence, sexual pleasure, contraception, STI prevention, consent, and communication. Sexperts also provide advising services for students who wish to speak to a peer on an individual basis. As a group, we strive to be inclusive and address all members of the Dartmouth student population.
Sexperts is a sexual health peer-advising group sponsored by Dartmouth College’s Student Wellness Center (Robinson Hall, 3rd Floor). Staff from the Student Wellness Center provide our training and serve as our staff advisor.
The philosophy of the Sexperts' program is based upon the following Shared Beliefs and Values:
Sexperts participate in approximately 40 hours of training, typically offered during a class time, like 10A or 2A a few times a year. This training is designed to give students the knowledge and ability to discuss such topics as healthy relationships, intimacy, and sexual health (including reproductive health, sexuality, sexual identity, body image, sexual orientation, sexual decision making, abstinence, sexual pleasure, contraception, STI prevention, consent, and communication). Because our training focuses on healthy relationships and sexual education, as well as listening and advising skills, Sexperts are prepared to serve as resources and referral points for their peers around these areas.
The next Sexperts Training is scheduled for Winter 2016. If you are interested in training to be a Sexual Health Peer Advisor, blitz Sexperts@Dartmouth.edu to be added to our interest list. Applications for to apply for Spring term will be available online in March.
