There are many ways to get involved with sexual violence prevention at Bucknell.

Apply to be a Speak UP Peer

Speak UP Bucknell Peer Educators have the opportunity to make a difference in their campus community by educating their fellow students on topics related to sexual misconduct, relationship violence, and stalking. Peers undergo over 35 hours of training in sexual violence prevention, consent, bystander intervention, rape culture, gender norms, healthy relationships, and how to support survivors of sexual violence.

Applications to become a New Peer in Spring 2019 are due midnight on Monday, Nov. 5. No late applications will be accepted.

Join the Ally Program

The Ally Program is a 7-week experience designed for members of Greek Organizations who want to become leaders in their chapters and their community. This training focuses on identifying harmful gender norms, stereotypes, and unhealthy sexual attitudes, as well as the importance of consent and how to support a survivor of sexual violence. The Ally program is offered in both the fall and spring semesters, although dates and times vary each semester and spaces may be limited.

Request a Workshop

Speak UP offers a number of different workshops which can be given to any hall, organization, chapter or team. We are able to work with a group to facilitate discussions and presentations around topics or questions of the group’s choosing. For more information email
