Sexual Health and Assault Peer Educators (SHAPE)

Shape promotional materials

Sexual Health and Assault Peer Educators (SHAPE) is a peer education group affiliated with CARE that provides education, organizes events, and generates campus dialogue about sexual health and sexual assault.

SHAPE's mission is to increase students’ comfort about sexuality, encourage them to learn and adopt healthy sexual behaviors and help them recognize and address unhealthy and dangerous behaviors and attitudes regarding sexuality. SHAPE fulfills this mission by providing peer-led presentations and workshops to students, organizing outreach events, collaborating with other student organizations on relevant events, and serving as a resource for individual students looking for accurate information about sexual health and sexual violence.
