The predominant aim of the program is to facilitate primary prevention (i.e., promotion of healthy behaviors and attitudes and reduction of the likelihood of new problems) by increasing community awareness of and individual responsibility to sensitive interpersonal issues.

The RPE receive specialized training to educate the campus community on issues of sexual assault and misconduct, consent, and other forms of interpersonal violence.
