What is a Face?

The anonymous and confidential nature of Ears for Peers necessitates that information about our members be kept private. However, we have five members, called “Faces,” whose role is to be the public face of Ears, and therefore they do not take calls on the line. You may have seen them tabling at Dewick or Carm, or representing Ears at on-campus events.  If you have questions about Ears for Peers, please don’t hesitate to approach them.
