The Relationship Peer Educators serve all members of the Holy Cross community by establishing themselves as an interdisciplinary resource group that coordinates and provides developmental programming for students and the greater college community around issues of sexual and relationship violence. Specifically, these programs are designed to enhance awareness of and build the skills needed to reduce the many forms of intolerance, violence and harassment that can and do occur on-campus and in society at large. RPEs are trained to offer support with knowledge of on campus and community resources, and to make accurate referrals to appropriate sources of help for fellow students.
The RPE members receive specialized training to educate the campus community on issues of sexual assault and misconduct, consent, and other forms of interpersonal violence. As a peer education group, RPE members do not engage in peer counseling. They are co-advised by the Offices of Student Wellness Education and Title Ix & Equal Opportunity
