Prevention of Men’s Violence against Women Champion’s Committee

Committee Description:

Prevention of Men’s Violence Against Women Champion’s Committee was designed to help create a cultural shift in the way we think about, talk about and act around sexual violence by doing two things:

  1. Establishing a sense of ownership of the problem among everyone.
  2. Providing tips, tools, and inspiration to empower everyone to make a difference, every day.

Committee Goals:  

  1. To utilize social capital in an effort to reduce stigma and establish a call to action among students, faculty and staff in an effort to prevent campus sexual assault.
  2. To align Georgia Southern University sexual assault prevention and awareness messaging with recommended national tool kits.
  3. To promote awareness for future SART Campaigns.
