Communication and Consent Educators (CCEs)
The Communication and Consent Educators (CCEs) are a large, diverse group of undergraduates working together to foster a more positive sexual and social climate on campus. Every year, there is a team of queer CCEs who work specifically with and within LGBTQ+ communities on campus. The CCEs aim to end sexual violence by transforming Yale’s corner of contemporary culture into one where respect, mutuality, and mindfulness are the norms. A safe campus is critically important, but CCEs want even more – they want Yale to be a place where everyone can thrive.
Through workshops, trainings, and conversations, the CCEs help students identify troubled dynamics and develop skills for effective interventions; even better, we work on strategies for avoiding problems altogether. CCE teams also work (usually in collaboration with other student groups) to change the campus environment itself, reimagining traditional events and practices to maximize the opportunities for ideals to flourish.
