Creating a cultural shift
Addressing sexual assault requires a culture shift and comprehensive approach to violence prevention that:
Acknowledges that the vast majority of sexual assaults are perpetrated by a person or persons known to the victim
Recognizes the complex and often co-occurring relationship between alcohol and drugs and sexual assault
Challenges the propensity for victim-blaming
Promotes the acceptance of – and affirms each individual’s right to – a broad spectrum of sexual choices
Understands and clearly defines the meaning and nature of consent
Taking a community approach
Addressing sexual assault requires a holistic approach. We aim to raise awareness of issues, resources and responsibilities among all members of the campus, providing each with the skills and empowerment to promote a caring community in which students are safe from sexual assault, harassment, and discrimination.
