20:1 Sexual Assault Prevention Program: A Peer Education Model for Greek Life and Athletics

The 20:1 Sexual Assault Prevention Program is a peer education program with an emphasis on Greek Life and Athletics. 20:1 peer interns educate other students on issues of sexual assault prevention including: victim empathy, sexual consent, and bystander behavior.

20:1 was originally a sexual assault prevention peer education program composed of leaders from the University's diverse fraternities. These men voluntarily educated other fraternity members and other men's groups on issues regarding sexual assault. Along with delivering education to all 25 Interfraternity Council and multicultural fraternities on campus, volunteers provided new member education sessions in the fall and spring. 20:1 was established in 2004. Currently 20:1 is a credit bearing internship with both male and female peers. Although an emphasis is still on providing sexual assault prevention education to Greek Life and Athletics, 20:1 has expanded providing education to a wide variety of students across campus including freshmen through the First Year Experience Course, students in the Residential Life Community and students throughout campus at events like Spring Fling and the Health Fair.
