The RSVP Center offers programs to expand student, faculty, and staff knowledge surrounding stalking, sexual harassment, sexual violence, identity, and intimate partner/domestic violence. We also house Mizzou’s bystander intervention program: Engage-d Tigers. We are often requested as guest lecturers for courses and for student organization meetings through our RSVP Peer Educators program, and we also offer our own educational programming throughout the academic year. Our Center offers professional and academic development via volunteering, service learning, work-study opportunities, practicum experiences, and internship opportunities.  Center professionals also serve as content experts and consult on student projects, faculty and staff team policies, and organizational development. The links attached to this page contain more information on each of these items. 

RSVP Peer Educator Presentations:

(45-60 minutes required)

Introduction to the Dynamics of Stalking
