What is S.H.A.R.E.?
S.H.A.R.E. is a peer education group focused on encouraging sexual health and wellness by providing education, support, resources and collaborative programs across the University of Maine community. Our goal is to empower students to make informed decisions regarding their sexual wellbeing and encourage a responsible and respectful foundation to build on throughout their lives. We strive to be inclusive of the infinite ways that our peers choose to use, express, and identify their sexual selves.
S.H.A.R.E. was a peer education group that originated in the late 1980’s and was overseen by health educator, Ruth Lockhart. It was restarted in 2017 and is overseen by Dr. Sandra Caron.
