Letter to the Editor: Sexual Assault Awareness Week
Residence Life will be partnering with several departments and organizations on campus to host Sexual Assault Awareness Week November 30th – December 6th. We invite the campus community to get involved in events.
Having attended Chancellor Power’s town hall meeting, we heard the voice of the students and know it is necessary to go beyond a paper campaign to get the word to our community about sexual assault on a college campus. There are people invested in making positive change at this university to ensure we do whatever it takes to provide information and opportunities for discussion on topics of sexual assault awareness and prevention.
With the support of other departments including the Student Activities Office, Women’s Center, Student Center for Health and Counseling, Office of Diversity and Equal Opportunity, and UAF Police we will offer a week of programming opportunities intended to educate and support our community as we work together to stop sexual assault.
We will also be bringing the “It’s on US” campaign to UAF. Please visit www.itsonus.org to learn more about the campaign and take the pledge during Sexual Assault Awareness Week. Please look out for our upcoming advertisement in the SunStar and plan to get involved!
