Understanding Sexual Violence on Campus

When a student shares an experience of harm and asks for your support, do you wonder what to say and how to help? Sexual assault affects everyone on campus, but our roles as faculty and staff are complicated by many factors, including our own experiences. If you are interested in reading a powerful memoir by Chanel Miller called Know My Name, learning about resources on our campus, and developing a skillset to support students, then consider participating in this coaching circle co-facilitated by Sony Heath and Juliana Carlson. All participants will receive a free copy of Miller’s book after registering to join.

Eligibility: Open to all faculty and staff

Monday Sessions: 11:00am-12:00pm in Strong Hall 145 / Sept 12     Oct 3     Oct 24    Nov 14
