In October 2014, UW Oshkosh announced that it was joining the “It’s on us campaign” spearheaded by the White House to end sexual assault on college campuses. The It’s On Us campaign calls on us to stand up and stop violence. We are “to identify situations in which sexual assault may occur; to intervene in situations where consent has not or cannot be given; to create an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported.” The Bystander Intervention Workshops, developed by Reeve Union’s Diversity and Inclusion Programs and the UW Oshkosh Women’s Center, will help students develop the tools that they need to understand and practice the It’s On Us pledge. Don’t be a silent bystander; learn how to intervene safely. To register go here, http://tinyurl.com/StandUpTitans.
