IN THE 2022-2023 ACADEMIC YEAR:

Sexual Violence Response hosted 342 training, education, and prevention activities for 14,335 participants.


The SVR team offered prevention programs under the theme “I am & I can”,which emphasizes the power of community members to make a change. Three of the programs focused on the digital-first nature of community members’ intimate relationships to increased attendees' knowledge of current trends, promising prevention practices, and available resources for survivors and co-survivors.
