 Supporting International Students that Experience Sexual Violence

Many campuses proudly boast as part of their student body a number of students who are international and come from all corners of the world. International students bring new ideas, knowledge, and perspective onto our campuses. However, more often than not, the international student community tends to be isolated from the general student body. This isolation often includes a lack of knowledge around what types of resources are available if one were to experience sexual violence on campus. This workshop will help participants to examine their campus’ specific international student community and their specific needs in knowing how to disseminate important information and reach out to those who may need more support. 
Workshop is open to faculty and staff.

Let’s Talk Sex! 

Many college students start experimenting sexually during their college years. In a world that is still hush-hush about sex, we want to create a space where we can talk about sex openly and freely and without judgment. Regardless of your race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, or any other identity, sex is something that exists. This workshop involves how to talk about sex so that the conversation leads to healthy and safe sexual experiences, how to obtain consent, and what consent might look/sound like in the moment. Let’s talk about how to talk about sex with your partners and how to “spice up” your sex life. Let’s talk about how to check in with a partner and make sure they’re still into it. 
This workshop is open to students, faculty, and staff.
