SafetyNet



SafetyNet is the Peer Education component of the Think S.A.F. E. Project and is composed of upperclassmen who are trained on the topics of sexual assault, dating violence and stalking.

These students provide educational programs to student groups and residence halls and assist in planning awareness activities, particularly during October, Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and April, Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Mission

The mission of Connecticut College’s SafetyNet is to use our role as peers to influence the campus community through education, awareness and prevention strategies in order to foster a safer, more proactive and engaged environment that will ultimately reduce the occurrence of power-based personal violence.
