Sexual Violence Prevention
Sexual violence in higher education is pervasive, and no institution is immune to the harm caused by sexual assault; dating and relationship violence; sexual harassment; and stalking. However, all students have a part to play in reducing sexual violence on their campus. This course discusses the finer points of consent, provides an overview of sexual violence, and empowers students to take action to prevent further harm. Using presenter-led content, personal accounts of interpersonal violence, interactive elements, and scenarios that demonstrate key concepts, this course illustrates how sexual violence prevention goes beyond victims and perpetrators: It affects everyone and requires all of us to take action.
