MUSG will host “Title IX & Sexual Assault: Voicing Violations, Healing Together, Changing A Culture,” a forum on sexual assault, Tuesday, Feb. 20, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Weasler Auditorium
The goal of sexual violence prevention is simple—to stop sexual violence from happening in the first place. The solutions, however, are just as complex as the problem. The forum on sexual assault will discuss how Marquette University handles sexual assault and violence cases and will explore how we can collectively improve the campus climate through communication, behavior, policy, and other procedures.
As a forum independently organized and facilitated by students, supplemented by questions submitted by students, and backed by both student groups and various University departments, this conversation unites the Marquette Community for the benefit of all those effected by sexual assault.
At the event students will have the chance to voice their concerns and have an open dialogue with the following panelists:
- Ms. Katy Adler, coordinator for advocacy services and sexual violence prevention education
- Dr. Nina M. Sathasivam-Rueckert, Marquette Counseling Center: Psychologist/Sexual Violence & Trauma Treatment Services Coordinator
- Lt. Jill Weisensel, MUPD: Night Shift Patrol Operations and Bystander Intervention Training
- Dr. John Grych, professor for the Department of Psychology
- Ms. Christine Taylor, Title IX Coordinator
- Ms. Meredith Gillespie, MUSG outreach vice president
If you have a question that you would like to be asked during the forum, you can submit questions anonymously online by Friday, Feb. 16.
