Sexual Assault Prevention

"Sexual violence prevention means addressing the root causes of sexual violence, like broad cultural factors such as beliefs about gender equality and multiple forms of oppression such as racism, transphobia, and ableism, and social systems that reinforce power over others.” -National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC)

At UNC Student Wellness, our team is dedicated to preventing sexual violence through a broader education of cultural change within our community, both on and off campus. Student Wellness implements prevention, education, and awareness raising programs on campus about issues of sexual harassment and sexual violence to give students the confidence to take action to reduce violence and harassment on our campus. It is important to acknowledge that change does not happen overnight, but through dedication to promoting prevention work within our community. We believe that every voice can make a difference!

Sexual Assault Awareness Month:

In April, we celebrate Sexual Assault Awareness Month in an effort to support victims and survivors of sexual violence. At UNC, organizations and departments host events throughout the month to raise awareness of the many resources available on campus and in the community, to discuss the impact of sexual violence, and to identify ways that we can help prevent it.
