Sexual Violence on College Campuses: Listening to and Learning From Student Activists
Location: DSU 1071

 Sexual Violence on College Campuses:
Listening to and Learning From Student Activists 

When: Wednesday, September 17
Time: 7:00pm
Location: DSU 1071

This interactive, multimedia presentation examines rape culture on college campuses, using up-to-the-minute examples of activism among students, expert opinion, and observational analysis to explore how students can and do confront sexual violence against women, students of color, and LGBTQ students. Most notable in this presentation is that it shows how students have mobilized in the past AND how they are engaging in vital and important activism to un-learn rape culture and create college communities that marginalize violence in all forms. This event is co-sponsored by the Office of Scholar Development, Gender & Women's Studies, ICSR, Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion, and the Honors College.
