Lecture: Examining History and Power to Address Campus Sexual Violence
Hosted by: College of Education

"In this talk, Chris provides an accessible overview of the historical roots of sexual violence in the U.S. including ties to
colonization and slavery.  She will then draw connections between the historical roots of sexual violence and current
practices on college campuses, providing strategies for consideration to more effectively address campus sexual violence
from a power-conscious, historical perspective.  Examples of strategies include providing multiple alternatives for
victim-survivors to pursue resolution to their cases and shifting frameworks to focusing on perpetrators to end sexual
violence."

Workshop: Building Equitable and Effective Student-Led Movements to Eradicate Sexual Violence
Hosted by: College of Education

"Eradicating sexual violence requires student leaders and activists to engage a variety of strategies to effectively work
with different stakeholders, including peers, media representatives, university administrators, state and federal-level policy
makers, among others.  Sometimes, we need to be in the streets (and on social media) with protest signs; other times, we
need to be in suits sitting around a table with policy makers and administrators, speaking their language. In this session, we
will consider the many roles of sexual violence activists and develop strategies for navigating a variety of roles from our
individual social locations.  Finally, we will examine our unique strengths and how those may best contribute to the
movement to eradicate sexual violence."

When: April 3rd, 2019 at 11am-12:30pm
Where: TECO Room

Workshop: Beyond Mandatory Reporting: The Role of Faculty and Graduate Students in Addressing Campus Sexual
Violence

Hosted by: College of Education

"Faculty play a unique role in educating students about campus sexual violence.  Many faculty on campus have
personal investment or research and teaching interests directly related to campus sexual violence, yet feel unsure
about how to address these issues in through their work.  In this workshop, we’ll explore a variety of strategies for faculty
to engage the topic of sexual violence through their teaching, research, and service and to support the campus-wide efforts
designed to address campus sexual violence.  Specifically, we’ll examine strategies for integrating information about
sexual violence through the lens of a variety of disciplines to more effectively reach students in a multitude of ways."
