Report it : Complaints of sexual misconduct/assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking harassment
April is Sexual Assault Prevention Month
Each year the nation recognizes sexual assault awareness month, and a committee of WKU and nonprofit organizations plan activities to raise awareness for prevention in Bowling Green. Activities are geared toward educating individuals on sexual violence and promoting resources for those who have experienced sexual assault or sexual misconduct. The planning committee consists of the following offices and organizations: WKU Counseling and Testing, Hope Harbor, WKU Student Wellness, Gender and Women's Studies, Barren River Area Safe Space (BRASS, Inc.), WKU Housing & Residence Life, WKU Student Activities, Barren River Area Child Advocacy Center, WKU Public Affairs, South Central Kentucky Community and Technical College.
Students can participate in a interactive session on bystander prevention on April 4th at 5:00pm in DSU 3020. The session will be led by Hope Harbor with support from the WKU Counseling Center and WKU Student Conduct.
First Things FIrst features original poetry performances discussing themes of empowerment, race, gender, body image, sexual violence, healing, and recovery. This event raises funds for Hope Harbor, Inc.
