The Clothesline Project is a campus-wide display of t-shirts representing survivors and supporters of sexual violence.

Creating Champions – Virtual Training

Wednesday, 2/24 from 5:30 PM to 8 PM via Zoom

The Creating Champions workshop is a three-hour interactive and informative program. Created for male-identified individuals, we can confront challenges due to harmful gender norms while restructuring the concept of masculinity through mindful and intentional evaluation. The program is designed to help deepen understanding, gain new perspective, identify harmful societal norms, and provide tips, tools, and inspiration to empower everyone to make a difference, every day.
