Act to End Sexualized Violence I (Fall Semester)
In the fall semester, the 1-unit course "Act to End Sexualized Violence" is offered. Everyone is encouraged to enroll! The course is a weekend seminar taught by staff and faculty from multiple departments. "Act to End Sexualized Violence" was built out of student activism and addresses sexualized violence not just as an individual act, but as part of a rape-supportive culture. Sexualized violence affects everyone. This is a chance for students from all different majors and departments to take part in critical discussions about violence, accountability, healing, and supporting survivors. There will also be a component of the class focused on taking action to end sexualized violence. Contact Kim Berry for more information.

Qualified students will be eligible to receive internship credit for their work as peer educators the following semester. Contact Kim Berry for more information.
