The Safe Sisters program through the Women and Gender Resource Center consists of Greek Peer Educators from Panhellenic, NPHC, and professional sorority groups. Safe Sisters are trained by professional staff members on the issues of interpersonal violence with a goal of promoting positive bystander behavior and building safe communities.

What does a Safe Sister do?

As a trusted member of their organization, Safe Sisters serve as a uniquely positioned ally and resource within the chapter. They facilitate conversations within the chapter on interpersonal violence and connect members to campus and community resources. Safe Sisters play a vital role in supporting victims and survivors and raising awareness of interpersonal violence.
