 Classroom and Club/Organization Presentations

Our goal is to partner with faculty to complement their curriculum, supplement the classroom experience, and provide professional development opportunities for paraprofessionals employed in the CWGE. Many of our presentations are facilitated by paid peer educators. A partnership between CWGE staff and faculty/staff ensure a successful experience for your students. 

Status Quo

Do words really hurt? What perpetuates violence? How do I be an ally? This 60 minute interactive program explores the concept of allyhood and challenging the status quo, while exploring the concept of socialization.

Through this workshop, students will:

-Examine the Cycle of Socialization.
-Reflect on messages institutions (peers, school, media, family) send about people different from them.
-Describe one way that our identity impacts our world view.

Situationships

This 3-part series is dedicated to making consent the new normal, especially as it translates to sexual consent. Each workshop is 30-minutes in length and involves video, activities, and audience participation. Workshops build off of each other, starting with personal boundaries, communication, and ending with sexual consent.

Through these workshops, students will:
