What are the 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. We aim to end sexual violence by transforming our corner of contemporary culture into one where respect, mutuality, and mindfulness are the norms. A safe campus is critically important, but we want even more – we want Yale to be a place where everyone can thrive.
Through workshops, trainings, and conversations, we 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.
