STRIVE (Sexual Trauma Interpersonal Violence Education) is a peer education group comprised of a diverse group of UF graduate and undergraduate students overseen by GatorWell Health Promotion Services. Through STRIVE, peer educators are involved in outreach, education, and advocacy initiatives related to the prevention of interpersonal violence.

STRIVE’s Vision
We envision a living and learning environment free from interpersonal violence, one in which the campus culture encourages respect, communication, and equity.

STRIVE’s Mission
STRIVE educates, inspires and empowers UF students to actively participate in creating a campus community that is free from interpersonal violence. STRIVE seeks to promote individual and community accountability, and to challenge beliefs and behaviors that encourage rape, sexual assault, relationship violence/abuse, harassment, and other forms of violence. STRIVE peer educators are available to facilitate open, non-judgmental forums and presentations to explore questions such as “Why does this happen?” and “What can we do?” To request a presentation, click the presentation button below, call 352-273-4450 or email gatorwell@ufsa.ufl.edu.
