Peers Helping Reaffirm, Educate, and Empower (PHREE)

PHREE members are responsible for facilitating educational programs and participating in other types of campus activities to raise awareness about issues such as sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking, body image, and gender stereotypes.

Members meet weekly to talk and share experiences, while learning the valuable skills needed to be peer educators in the campus community. As a diverse group, PHREE students collaborate, support one other, and have fun with others who share similar interests.
