Sexual assault awareness training will be available to faculty on November 18 and 19. Please consider becoming part of the growing network of supportive faculty and staff and reserve your place early.

October 2004

Dear Colleagues:

As you may know, November 15 marks the beginning of Sexual Assault Awareness 2004, a week of campus-wide events aimed at educating students on issues related to sexual assault. As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Week, the University of Cincinnati’s Women’s Center (UCWC) is offering two faculty trainings on how to respond to student disclosures of sexual assault, intimate partner violence and stalking.

You may have had, at some point, students in your classes who were affected by gender and/or sexual violence. Knowing how best to support them is important in helping them be successful in their education and in their healing process.
Topics covered: 
• University of Cincinnati protocol for responding to sexual violence
• Tips on effectively responding to disclosures
• Resources available on campus and in the community
• What you can do as faculty to help promote a Just community, free of sexual and gender violence

When & Where: 

Thursday, November 18 12:30–2pm in Swift 620
Friday, November 19 12:30–2pm in TUC Room B &C

Lunch will be provided.
