Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is nationally recognized as Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM for short). Along with UR’s ongoing prevention efforts, SAAM highlights the opportunity to raise awareness about sexual violence, to teach our campus community how to prevent it, and to support survivors.

Some of our annual events include Take Back the Night and The Clothesline Project. Check back in March to see what other activities and events are going on across campus.
