We are also available for tabling events, to be a supportive presence at potentially emotionally charged events, and special topics as requested by specific groups.
Due to our high service demands, we may not be able to accommodate all outreach requests, but we will do our best. To increase the chances that we can accommodate your request, please contact us at least 2 weeks in advance of your preferred date. It is also helpful if you have a clear idea of the topic you would like use to present on, the amount of time for the presentation, and any other details you can provide.
We are available to consult with residence hall staff, CWU faulty and staff, and occasionally community members.
