The Healthy Relationship & Interpersonal Violence Education Program (THRIVE)

THRIVE is a student-led peer education program

Committed to creating and promoting a safe environment

The Healthy Relationship & Interpersonal Violence Education (THRIVE) program is committed to creating and promoting a safe environment for the Emporia State University community through educational initiatives and outreach. THRIVE seeks to reduce sexual violence and empower individuals to engage in healthy relationships.

THRIVE provides primary and ongoing prevention/education programs to teach ESU students, faculty, and staff about safe and positive options that an upstander can take when he, she, or they witness potential domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking, and provides information about risk reduction to recognize warning signs of abusive behavior and how to avoid potential attacks.

THRIVE, in accordance with Emporia State University’s policies and procedures, prohibits all forms of discrimination, including all types of harassment and all other types of violence. This includes—but is not limited to—domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, rape, acquaintance rape, and stalking.
