WVU Peer Advocates

West Virginia University employs Title IX Education Specialists who coordinate the WVU Peer Advocate program. This program trains students to work to end sexual assault and power-based personal violence on campus through prevention education. This training takes form through a 3 credit hour course where students receive the knowledge and tools they need to help their peers. Services provided by the WVU Peer Advocates include but are not limited to the following:

  • Accompany students to Ruby Memorial Hospitalstudent conduct hearings, the WellWVU Carruth Counseling Center , or other appointments related to their experience and recovery.
  • Assist students in filing a Title IX complaint with West Virginia University.
  • Host prevention and awareness events across campus.
  • Meet with students to discuss their experience and the resources and options available to them.
  • Provide on-campus education regarding the issues around Title IX and sexual violence at West Virginia University.

Any student is welcome and encouraged to become a WVU Peer Advocate and can become involved by calling our office at (304) 293-5600.
