About Sexual Assault Prevention
Sexual Assault Prevention is an online sexual misconduct awareness and prevention course. It is completely confidential and individual student responses about alcohol and other drug behavior are not accessible by Reinhardt or any other party.
One in five college women will experience some form of non-consensual sexual activity by graduation. Additionally, one in 71 men will experience rape at some point in their lives, with one in six victimized by sexually abusive experiences by the age of 18. The widespread impact of sexual misconduct on students presents an urgent and pressing challenge for our nation's campuses. Sexual Assault Prevention – Understanding Sexual Assault™ addresses the critical issues of sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking, which impact countless college students across the country.
Sexual Assault Prevention uses a population-level approach to educate all students on the issues associated with sexual assault and relationship violence, taking into account their unique perspectives and experiences, providing:
- Importance of values
- Aspects of (un)healthy relationships
- Gender socialization
- Sexual assault
- Bystander intervention
- On-going activism
