Group A: Sexual Respect@Amherst - MANDATORY

August 26, 2014 - 3:45 pm to 5:15 pm (already occurred)

Join Sexual Respect Educator Amanda Collings Vann as we explore what it means to help create a campus culture that reflects sexual respect and nonviolence. Explore what you want your role to be in helping to shift our culture to one that conceptualizes consensual sexual activity as a choice. What does affirmative, enthusiastic consent look like? What is sexual violence and how can you recognize it when you see it? What resources are available on campus to help you and your friends? How can you learn to be an empowered and active bystander when you see harmful behavior? Join us as we explore these issues as part of your Orientation to Amherst.
