Sexual Assault Prevention and Response

Presentation and Roundtable Discussion for Faculty and Staff

Wednesday, February 1, 2006
3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Klingenstein Lounge, Campus Center

Faculty and staff members are often in a position to notice when a student has experienced a traumatic event such as a sexual assault, or is being abused by a dating partner. This presentation and roundtable discussion will provide information about the problem on our campus, as well as prevention strategies and effective ways to respond to students.

3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. -- Presentation: "The Language of Sexual Assault"

During this presentation participants will explore the cultural and legal meaning of the language we use to talk about sexual assault and rape: how pop culture and our underlying assumptions inform our language, how language defines responsibility and severity, and how the words we use influence personal and institutional response. A brief overview of the Clery Act will include information regarding the responsibilities of mandated reporters on college campuses.

Heather Campbell, education director, Advocacy Center
Bill Ferguson, associate director, Office of Public Safety

4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. -- Roundtable Discussion
