FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

When is the 2015 application due?
The application is due on Sunday, October 18th at 11:59 PM.

Who is eligible to apply?
All undergraduate students are eligible.

Will everyone who submits an application get an interview?
Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer an interview to every applicant. The exact number of interviews offered will be dependent on the number of applications that we receive.

What is the interview process like?
Interviews will be conducted in groups of 4 applicants, and will be one hour long. There will also be short individual interviews conducted as a part of the hour-long session.

Do I already have to be knowledgeable about sexual health and assault?
No! All of the information that you need to know will be covered in training. We don’t expect you to be an expert already. We are just looking for passionate people who feel comfortable talking about these topics.

What is the training process like? Is it a big time commitment?
Training is on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:45-7:45 PM at Searle. It is an in-depth process in which you will hear from CARE staff and guest speakers, learn about peer education, and build your knowledge about sexual health and assault. It is also an incredibly fun time in which you get to eat lots of free snacks and bond with the other members of your training class! You are expected to be present at all training sessions, though we do allow 2 excused absences.

If I can’t attend training, can I still apply to be a member of SHAPE?
Unfortunately, you will not be considered for membership if you are unable to attend training.

What is the time commitment like after training?
After training is over, SHAPE members meet weekly at Searle from 6-7 PM on Wednesdays. Members also spend some time each week doing work for their committees (i.e. planning events or training, working the G-Spot, finding/creating online content). The exact time commitment per week varies by committee.

If you have any further questions about the application process and/or SHAPE membership, please email our membership chair, Deanna Williams, at deannawilliams2016@u.northwestern.edu
