Peer Advocacy and Community Education, (PACE) can cover your class and provide a unique learning opportunity!

Peer Advocacy and Community Education, (PACE) (Formally SAPET) is a collective of student leaders who are specially trained, peer educators that provide training and dialogue in classrooms, residence halls, and other campus spaces to facilitate meaningful learning through discussion, instruction, and/or mentor-ship to their peers, individually or as part of a group.

Our Workshops Include:

The purpose of the Consent Workshop is to inform and provide students with the tools to understand what consent is, how it is obtained, and what it looks like for them in a sex positive light. Consent will be defined through the lens of the PLU Code of Conduct, and the topic of enthusiastic consent will be introduced and discussed. Participants will be asked to consider and reflect on the complexities of consent and the variety of contexts in which consent is relative.

This workshop examines how relationships seen in the media and personal experience shape our idea of intimacy. Participants will consider the values, strengths, and weaknesses they bring to interpersonal relationships. Unhealthy and abusive relationship red flags will also be discussed.

What is the difference between sex and gender? Aren’t there just two genders? What does it mean to be trans and is that a common experience? This presentation addresses these and other questions related to gender and sexuality.

Though often forgotten, men do have a gender, and the masculinities they present are often limited by social expectations. This presentation unpacks what it means to be male, explores the impact of hegemonic masculinity on our society, and the privileges and limitations inherent in being male in a patriarchal society.

This training prepares each member of the PLU community to be active bystanders and look out for one another in order to create a safer community for all. We care about our friends – this presentation provides an overview of warning signs and skills for response when they are at risk.
