Let's End Sexual Violence

A seminar and campus forum will create dialogue on how to end sexual violence.

Sexual assault and sexual violence are issues that impact everyone, including students at universities across the country.

As part of the effort to end sexual assault and sexual violence, San Diego State University and Associated Students are working to stimulate dialogue across campus on the topic.

A seminar titled "Yes! Yes! Yes! A Conversation About Consent & Sexual Violence," will be presented by Jeffrey S. Bucholtz, a nationally recognized expert in the field of sexual violence prevention and awareness.

The conversation will take a critical look at the ways in which our culture facilitates sexual violence and the impact that has on our campus community. It will run from  11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 12 in Montezuma Hall in the Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union. No registration is required.

About the seminar

Participants will learn how to utilize new strategies for discussing the language of gender and violence and apply discussions about the root causes of violence.

The training will also help participants understand the links between oppression, dehumanization and sexual violation, and to identify opportunities and implement strategies for sexual violence prevention and response at SDSU.

In addition to Bucholtz, there will be a presentation by student representatives to discuss the work SDSU students are doing to help end sexual violence.

Campus forum

In a separate forum, the SDSU community is invited to have an open conversation about sexual violence on Nov. 19.

It will be an opportunity for the campus community to come together and discuss current programs and concerns and to voice suggestions and ideas relating to the university's efforts to end sexual violence.

There will be two separate sessions from 11 a.m. to 12:30p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 3:30p.m and will take place in Montezuma Hall.

Those interested in participating in the campus forum are encouraged to RSVP.
