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.
