Respect is Part of Research Facilitator Application
Thank you for your interest in becoming a facilitator for Respect is Part of Research. You are taking a step towards a safer and more welcoming academic environment. Before you apply, we'd like to tell you about the roles and responsibilities you'll be taking on if you become a facilitator.

The most visible role you will have is, aptly, peer facilitator during the RPR workshop in the fall. You will be responsible for leading and moderating a discussion about sexual harassment, sexual assault and the department climate among incoming Physics and Astronomy graduate students.

A second important role you will have is as an ongoing resource in the department. RPR facilitators are available for consultation about reporting options, specific situations encountered in the department, and other topics covered at the RPR workshop. Your name will be on the RPR website, and may appear on the list of department resources for people who have questions about department climate, equity and inclusion, and sexual harassment.

To apply, please fill out the application questions on this page, and the scheduling questions on the next page. If you have any questions, please email Robert McGehee at
