Speech And Debate Society To Host Sexual Violence Prevention Discussion

The Speech and Debate Society will host a discussion on how Penn State can prevent sexual violence and encourage gender inclusivity within classrooms, student organizations, and the entire campus on September 30. The discussion will take place in 129B-C HUB from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., and is free and open to the public.

According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, one in five women and one in 16 men are sexually assaulted while in college. Additionally, more than 90 percent of sexual assault victims on college campuses never report the incident. Campuses everywhere are putting forth various efforts to lower these numbers exponentially, and Penn State is no exception. Take the university’s new model of investigating sexual assaults on campus, for example.

Students and community members alike are invited to this continued conversation regarding paths we can take to prevent sexual violence and tolerance of all genders. The event is sponsored by the Rock Ethics Institute, the Center for Women Students, the McCourtney Institute for Democracy, the Center for Democratic Deliberation, the Department of Communication Arts & Sciences, and Student Affairs.

For more information email the debate’s director John Kurr, or check out the Facebook event here.
