Our campus-based programming is designed to be flexible and integrate seamlessly into campus life. We offer a variety of program models designed to create and forge networks of mutual support among students. In each model, trained Student Peer Facilitators guide student groups through topics using active listening, supportive intervention techniques, and strategies of mindfulness.
Below are examples of our campus-based programming models. Our research-based programming can occur in-person or virtually, and be tailored to any audience.
Reflect Roundtables (previously Reflect Dinners) is a larger-scaled, peer-led event open to the entire campus. The frequency of these events depends on the host organization, typically occurring monthly and the audience differing each time. Based on predetermined topics, students drive the conversation and empower their peers to speak their minds. This is a designated safe space by design, enabling students to feel confident and comfortable opening up.
Reflect focuses on a peer-to-peer, strengths-based model designed to forge networks of mutual support and empower students to foster a campus culture defined by authenticity, self-love, and allyship.

REFLECT & CONNECT
Like Reflect Roundtables, Reflect & Connect sessions are peer-led events that work from a framework of creating a safe and authentic space for students to connect.
Where Reflect & Connect sessions differ is their size, frequency, and the determination of topics discussed. Reflect & Connect sessions typically have a smaller number of recurring participants, who meet more frequently (ideally biweekly), and dictate the topics of each session as they occur. Reflect & Connect sessions operate similarly to a cohort model.
The focus of Reflect & Connect sessions is to increase connectedness by longitudinal interactions.
