InTouch Student Coordinator
Major: Comparative Human Development
"I have always been interested in sexual health and how one can ensure that education on sex, sexual health, and healthy relationships is relevant to everyone rather than a specific group. I joined InTouch because I want to learn more about these issues while also being a resource for my peers and having a positive impact on campus."
Major: Chemistry and Biochemistry
I'm a big advocate for consent-focused, welcoming, comprehensive sex education. I came from a small school in Indiana and didn't learn about sexual health until I came to college. I joined In-Touch so I could help foster an inclusive space for this on campus. In my free time, I enjoy pursuing herpetology.
Major: Creative Writing and Pre-Med
I joined PHA because I think it's especially important to have access to information about healthy relationships and sexual education when coming into college, and PHA allows me to spread that information in the company of other amazing advocates who always teach me more!
“Coming from a conservative high school that lacked extensive health education, I wanted to be a part of the team that helps spread comprehensive sexual health and consent education across campus. The InTouch team has exposed me to the wide variety of people and resources here on campus that can help me make my own healthy decisions both mentally and physically.”
Major: Physics, minors in Visual Arts and Russian
Talking about sex and (sexual) abuse is often taboo, and while people have legitimate reasons for being uncomfortable discussing it, there needs to be an open, safe place to do so and to learn about these topics. I joined PHA to contribute to a group that creates a space where people can learn about sex and healthy relationships and be able to feel comfortable talking about these things.
Major: Gender and Sexuality Studies
"Having valid information about sexual health and healthy relationships is extremely important, especially in college. I joined InTouch to be able to give people the information they need, as well as to open up conversations around these topics."
Major: Comparative Human Development, minors in Statistics and Chemistry
“Sexual health and healthy relationships are subjects that are often portrayed inaccurately both in educational settings and the media, but they're both super important, especially in college! By being a part of InTouch, I'm able to provide necessary information to my peers while also helping empower them to make their own informed decisions.”
Major: Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations
"I am a part of InTouch because I believe having conversations about sexuality and relationships is so important, especially in college. I’m committed to starting these conversations, and to helping spread accurate, reliable information about these topics around campus."
Major: Linguistics and Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations
"I love providing my peers with accurate information so they can make safe, informed decisions about their sexuality and relationships. I am especially passionate about making this information positive and inclusive to people of all genders and sexualities.”
Major: Neuroscience and Psychology
“I'm a PHA because I believe giving people the opportunity to learn how to make healthy choices, particularly about something as socially confusing as sex, is really important. Relationships of all kinds are confusing to navigate, and I'd like to help in any way I can.”
Major: Public Policy Studies and Political Science
I joined InTouch because there is so much power in having comprehensive conversations surrounding sex and sexuality on campus. The more we know and discuss, the more welcoming and inclusive our community becomes.
Majors: Philosophy and Statistics
"College is where we meet a lot of people and explore new things. I joined InTouch because I want my friends and peers to know how to have and maintain healthy relationships, and ensure that they know about the resources that are available to them."
