Articles, video, and other sources of information may be utilized in class.
The seminar functions as a forum for students to learn about sexual assault, prevention, victim empathy, sexual consent, bystander behavior, peer education, and oral presentation skills. During the seminar, students will be expected to engage in class discussion, orally present learned material, and design creative approaches to presenting the material at officially planned peer education sessions.
Each intern will be required to do presentations to a variety of student groups including but not limited to Greek Life, Athletics, freshmen and multi-cultural student groups. Interns will be responsible in part for contacting maintaining their schedule of presentations for being responsible to participate in all presentations that they sign up for meeting the five hour per week requirement. All interns are required to participate in several big events during the year. These events include, but are not limited to, Greek Life's New Member Education, The University Health Fair, The Clothesline Project/Take Back the Night and Spring Fling. (these are not optional) In addition, interns will be responsible for other presentation type activities throughout the year, including tabling, and other outreach activities as assigned/requested. All presentations given will be based on information and training provided in the seminar classes.
Interns are to keep a record of all time spent working for the 20:1 internship (this includes class). The internship requirement is to maintain 5 hours per week in order to fulfill the requirement. Time sheets must be handed in weekly during seminar.
At the end of each semester interns will hand in a 2-3 page paper and do a 5-10 minute presentation based on the topic of the paper. Semester One: discuss areas of personal growth during the fall semester as it relates to being part of the 20:1 internship.
Semester two: discuss three challenges over the course of the year, why were they challenges, how did you handle them, what did you learn from them, what did you learn about yourself.
Administrative interns will also hand in a 2-3 page paper and present a 5-10 minute presentation. This will be a statistical analysis of all services rendered by 20:1
All cell phones/pagers, iPods and Laptops must be turned off during class meetings, and all presentations. It is an expectation that interns will refrain from leaving class, presentations, etc. to use these devices unless there is an anticipated (emergency) call that has been discussed with instructors prior to the start of class.

This class is a field experience. Due to the emphasis given to comprehensive training and constructive participation, consistent attendance is given bulk status in determining performance. Basically, participation and attendance is mandatory and expected. Any absences must be communicated directly to the instructors in person, email or via phone, prior to class or the given event.
Sexual Violence is a world-wide epidemic that affects women, men and our communities. 1 in 3 women will experience some form of violence in their lifetime and every minute, 1.3 women are raped. In the majority of cases (98%), sexual violence is perpetrated by men, but the majority of men are not perpetrators. With this in mind, we ask men and women to join The Sexual Assault Prevention Project at Binghamton University to help reduce the violent crimes against college students on campus.
We ask that you pledge to help do your part to reduce and end sexual violence, not only on campus, but in our everyday lives.
I pledge to:
By participating in the Binghamton University Sexual Assault Prevention Project, I also pledge that I have never sexually assaulted any person in the past.
Sexual Assault is sexual contact with another person without their consent. It is not only a crime but is morally wrong.
