Team Positive Presence

What does Team Positive Presence do?

Team Positive Presence (TPP) is a student-centered initiative focused on peer to peer interactions that are positive, helpful and kind. We promote a positive environment for students on campus, and help connect students with educational resources off campus. The goals of the TPP program are to facilitate a culture of safe celebrations, increase the sense of community among UMass students, and create a positive social atmosphere on campus. We provide positive social messaging and raising awareness of university and Amherst regulations and laws. We also practice doing random acts of kindness! As a part of Off Campus Student Life, we also support department events and conduct outreach to off campus students. Come be part of a team committed to safety and positive social interactions among peers, the University, and the Amherst community!
