Sexual Assault Conference Geared Toward Students

Penn State announced the Campus Sexual Assault Education Conference is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 15 in the HUB Auditorium and Heritage Hall. The keynote speaker will be Laura Dunn, a third year student at the University of Maryland Carey School of Law.

This one differs from last year’s successful conference in that it’s free and only open to students. Last October, a sold-out conference featuring speakers Sugar Ray Leonard and Elizabeth Smart was held, with registration costing $145 for the general public and $45 for students.

The purpose of this year’s one-day conference is to educate students on sexual assault, with an emphasis on masculinity and rape. Students will be informed through a variety of workshops throughout the day, with participants receiving a free lunch.

Here is a list of topics that will be discussed:

  • Rape myths
  • Sexual assault in the LGBT community
  • Methods to preventing sexual assault
  • Preventing rape in a hook-up culture
  • What to do after sexual assault
  • Dating violence
  • Legal procedures
  • Bystander intervention training
  • Sexual assault across cultures
  • Men’s role in preventing sexual assault
