  How To Request A Prevention Program 

Complete the Community Prevention & Outreach Services Request Form

Due to the many responsibilities of CS staff and the large request for services, we request a minimum of ten audience members at each function.  Requests received at least one month in advance with at least three possible dates have a greater likelihood of being accommodated. Requests can be made up to one year in advance, and we can accommodate some requests for regularly scheduled functions. Although Community Prevention & Outreach Services Programming is generally scheduled Monday through Friday during regular business hours, we are able to accommodate a small number of events outside of this time. Please contact us for more information.

We also encourage you to familiarize yourself with the programming offered through PULSE/Peer Health Education in addition to those offered by Counseling Services.
