SEXUAL VIOLENCE CASE STUDIES
Some students on our campuses today engage in a hook-up culture of random sexual encounters with other students, usually fueled by alcohol. But, just because some students are getting drunk and hooking-up doesn't make it right, or legal. When does a hook-up cross the line? Students don't really know, and they've heard confusing messages. This program teaches students about incapacity and blackouts, and dispels common myths about alcohol and sex.
HOW CONSENT REALLY WORKS
Affirmative consent is a great idea whose time has come. Students have embraced consent — even owned it — because it is a reasonable idea. We all have a right not to be acted on by someone else in sexual situations unless we give clear permission. Affirmative consent replaces antiquated ideas about force and resistance which really don't have the same relevance today.
So, consent is simple, right? Not exactly.
10 THINGS EVERY STUDENT SHOULD KNOW ABOUT DRINKING
"Ten Things" is not about having a dry campus or telling students not to drink. It will reinforce those students who choose not to drink, or to drink moderately. But, many of our students are going to drink no matter what we do—so let's get them drinking smarter and drinking more safely.
WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT HAZING CAN KILL YOU
This one hour, interactive program for Greeks, Athletes, Bands, ROTC, etc. encourages audience members to propose alternative events and practices that allow for group engagement without hazing. This program identifies what constitutes hazing, and talks about the history of hazing practices within college organizations. It gives students ideas for how to transform their initiations, pledging, joining, rushing, and membership activities into meaningful associational activities, positive traditions, and group-building rituals.
WHAT IF THE PLANE BLEW UP? A PROGRAM ABOUT EMPOWERING BYSTANDER INTERVENTION
Audience members will learn that when they see something amiss, often others do as well. If you act first, as a leader, you will find that others will help. But, if you do not lead, no one may follow. This one-hour program is aimed primarily at all-male audiences, but it can be offered to all-female audiences, or audiences of mixed genders. There are many ways in which bystander intervention will make a difference on a college campus, and What if the Plane Blew Up? can be focused on specific issues, depending on your needs. High-risk Drinking. Hazing. Sexual Assault. Prejudice. Or, it can be directed at multiple topics in which intervention can make all the difference between a crime and safety. Between life and death. Between right and wrong.
