On-call resource and referral for Olin students
Peer Advocates (PA’s) are a group of independent and trained students at Olin who seek to provide resources around healthy relationships, sexual decision making, and consent while also serving as a peer support for victims of sexual misconduct, relationship violence, and/or any other unwanted or concerning behavior of a sexual nature. This program was founded by Kate Maschan (class of 2015) in the fall of 2014 as part of her AHS Capstone project.
Note: The Peer Advocates (PA's) are not an official student organization at Olin College. As an independent and trained group of students, the PA's views and actions do not represent that of the Title IX Office or Olin College. For information regarding the Title IX process please review Olin's Sexual and Interpersonal Misconduct and Title IX Policy and/or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
