PAVES are a group of dedicated sexual violence prevention peer educators striving toward a safer, happier, and healthier UD.  Sexual violence happens on college campuses, but through education and bystander intervention, we can fight back.

Mission statement: We are peer educators with the goal of stopping sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and stalking at University of Dayton.  We provide effective and inclusive education to facilitate well-being on campus, empower the community to become agents of change, and spread empathetic understanding of how power based personal violence can affect individuals in an evolving world.

Values: open-mindedness, trust, growth, dialogue, and empathy
