About

SARP Ambassadors assist in the planning and implementation of SARP events and initiatives, facilitate programs, provide valuable feedback on campus initiatives and facilitate important conversations with other BU students about interpersonal violence. 

SARP Ambassadors are committed to building community, creating a safer campus, and preventing sexual misconduct. If this sounds like you apply to be a SARP ambassador today. 

SARP Ambassador Responsibilities:  

  • Weekly Meetings: Monday nights from 6pm-8pm
    • These weekly meetings are an opportunity to brainstorm and collaborate on ideas to discuss interpersonal violence. Ambassadors deepen their knowledge by discussing current events, meeting with guest speakers, and hearing from staff. These meetings cover a range of topics such as rape culture, racial justice, classism, ableism, and other intersecting issues that impact our ability to prevent sexual violence.

  • Tabling
    • SARP ambassadors spend a portion of their hours doing outreach work to build awareness about SARP resources. Tabling involves attending events, at the GSU, and other locations frequented by students. Through tabling students are also able to share important prevention messages such as how to be a prosocial bystander or be an ally to survivors with intersecting identities.   

  • Awareness and Events
    • Encouraging others to be invested in preventing sexual misconduct can be done in so many ways! Here are a few examples of the many campaigns, events, and activities that SARP ambassadors have hosted over the years:
      • Incarcerated Survivors Letter Writing Event  
      • White Ribbon Week
      • I Will Walk With You
      • Sexual Assault Awareness Week
      • Domestic Violence Awareness Month
