In the United States April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities on how to prevent it.
Here at SCU, the Office of Equal Opportunity and Title IX is partnering with the Violence Prevention Program, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), Campus Safety, the Office of Student Life, the Women's and Gender Studies Department, the Library, the Public Health Program, and the YWCA to put on and support several events throughout the month of April.
These events focus on raising awareness, supporting and creating space for survivors, teaching bystander intervention skills, and much more. All events are on campus and free.
