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 Organizations

Many students and student organizations are already working in conjunction with SVPP by providing peer support, educational programs, or facilitated discussions. For more information or to get more involved, please contact:

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

Student Facilitators for the First-year Residential Experience

The Student Wellness Center is currently hiring students to facilitate programs for first-year floor meetings this coming year. Over the summer (18X), students will participate in training to develop and improve their public speaking, facilitation, and communication skills. In the fall (18F), they will partner with First-Year UGAs to deliver programs to first-year students via floor meetings. 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.

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 and helping recruit peers for focus groups and program pilots

The inaugural Board was selected last fall for the 2017-2018 academic year and is made up of a diverse array of undergraduate students. Members work approximately 2-3 hours per week (compensation provided), including interviewing members of their communities and actively participating in working meetings. 

We are currently recruiting new Board members for the 2018-2019 academic year. The application can be found at this link and should be submitted to by Tuesday, April 24 at 11:59pm. For more information, contact 

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.
