Sexual Assault Awareness Month Events


The Sexual Assault Awareness Committee at Sam Houston State University is hosting a series of event in recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This year's national theme, It's On Us, is designed to recognize that non-consensual sex is sexual assault, to identify situations in which sexual assault may occur, to intervene in situations where consent has not or cannot be given and to create an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported.

Local events include:
