April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
Statistics show that on campus one in five women and one in sixteen men are sexually assaulted during their time in college (Krebs, Lindquist, Warner, Fisher, & Martin 2007). These numbers are alarmingly high. It is up to us to learn the signs of sexual assault, and what we can do to prevent it.
Nightingale College is supporting by raising awareness around campus, so look out for the teal ribbons as well as our sexual assault awareness corner in Classroom 1. We will also have several media posts where you can show your support.
Let’s all work together to educate and involve one another to create a safe campus and environment for students, faculty and staff.
