Take Action to Raise Awareness About Sexual Violence
As a member of the ASU community, you can play an important role in reducing the incidence of sexual violence and its impact on students. The following information is provided to help ASU students, staff, faculty and parents fulfill this role.
In the classroom: select sexual violence and related topics for research papers, group projects and/or speaking assignments.
Outside the classroom: join a student organization, do community service, join a community coalition and/or attend an event addressing sexual violence.
In social settings: remind friends to protect their drinks, stick together and watch out for each other.
In the media: educate yourself, share information and tips on Facebook, let your friends know where you are and who you are with.
In any setting: speak up. If you think someone’s behavior is offensive or inappropriate, so do most of the other people in the group.
In the classroom:
Require sexual violence and related topics for research papers, group projects and/or speaking assignments.
Discuss sexual violence in relation to the course content.
Provide accurate information about sexual violence on campus and in communities.
