A SAFE and respectful learning environment is imperative to achieving our mission and vision.
When someone harms you, it can be hard to put a name on what happened and you are the only one who has the right to define what has happened to you. We hope, however, by providing some definitions of sexual assault, dating violence and stalking and bullying, students will understand what we mean when we use these terms.
In addition, there are a variety of options on how to report and/or receive help and some students may find this to be confusing, so we have provided answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.
“Sexual assault is one of the most under reported violent crimes in the country, and victims often suffer long term physical and emotional Trauma.”
- Domestic violence causes 3 deaths a day to women.
- 1 in 4 women have experienced severe physical violence by an intimate partner.
- 1 in 5 women have been raped in their lifetimes.
