Campus sexual assault has been a long standing and often overlooked problem both in Michigan and across the country. Many believe sexual assault won’t happen to them, to someone they know or be committed by someone they know. It is common to think sexual assault isn’t happening where I am, when in reality it can happen to anyone. The “Let’s End Campus Sexual Assault” initiative brings together university officials, students, law enforcement, stakeholders and legislators for a discussion on how we can inform students, empower survivors and bystanders, and prevent sexual assault on campuses.
- Change the culture surrounding sexual assault.
- Make Michigan a leader in ending sexual assault among the college aged population.
- Inform stakeholders, empower individuals, and prevent sexual assaults.
- Encourage collaboration and bipartisan efforts to identify best practices in the fight against sexual assault.
