Description

The SCPA Peer Support Program commenced in the Fall of 2021 and is designed to provide our students with the opportunity to share their questions, issues, and situations of need with carefully selected, qualified and trained peers. The program is an all-inclusive safe space which welcomes lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, and queer individuals, as well as anyone else in need of assistance.

Our program also helps students identify and contact professional assistance within or outside the university community.
