Campus Programming

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

The Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention (SAAP) committee plans events in recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Information is available at the Student Development and Leadership office located in the Student Center, Suite 204.1 and the Metropolitan State University Women's and LGBTQ Student Resource Center located in Founders Hall, Room 140. At Metropolitan State, we stand together against sexual and domestic violence in our communities.

Project SAVE (Sexual Assault and Violence Education)

Project SAVE is a peer educator program on campus coordinated by the Student Senate. The peer educators will be trained to respond to incidents dealing with sexual assault and violence on campus. They will hold a series of programs to serve as discussions to raise awareness monthly, as well as providing resource packets (online and print) that point to all on-campus resources dealing with sexual assault and violence.

Participating students will gain knowledge on sexual assault and violence while gaining leadership skills, training and increasing awareness and prevention of sexual assault for their campus community. Email for more information or to indicate your interest in participation.
