Relationship Remix is a program consisting of workshops for all incoming first-year undergraduate students that live in the residence halls at the University of Michigan. The interactive workshops focus on healthy relationships, communication, and consent and are a collaborative effort between University Housing, University Health Service’s peer education group, “Sexperteam,” and the Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center.
This past fall, volunteers from both Sexperteam and the Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center completed 131 Relationship Remix workshops in 1 month, 3 weeks, and 5 days: just 57 days, to be exact.
However, given that they did not facilitate every day, they actually did all of these 131 workshops during only 37 of those 57 days. That’s an average of 3 ½ workshops per day!
Further, that includes over 262 hours of facilitating, evaluating, and tabling by volunteers; what an amazing achievement! Not to mention, volunteers were present in 13 residence halls across campus.
In addition to educating over 3,000 first-year students, volunteers collected pre- and post-survey data from 1,300 students--this level of data collection had not been reached in past years of the program’s existence.
Thank you to our volunteers and partners in this project whose time, effort, and dedication made this year’s Relationship Remix workshops our most successful thus far!
