With sexual violence on college campuses a nationwide epidemic, the College’s Office of Title IX and other campus partners are hosting a range of events aimed at awareness and prevention.

Campus events for Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April continue through Denim Day on April 26.

Of particular importance is student participation in the HEDS Sexual Assault Campus Climate Survey. Students are encouraged to complete the survey from the Higher Education Data Sharing Consortium (HEDS) by April 28.

The HEDS survey, which is completely anonymous, will provide valuable information that will help the College address sexual assault.
