By August 28, 2013

A mandatory segment of the New Student Orientation program entitled “E Pluribus GAC” designed to inform and lead to greater sensitivity and awareness with regard to a number of issues, including sexual harassment and sexual violence. The segment is required of all new students (roughly 600) at the outset of each academic year, with attendance monitored by Collegiate Fellows, Peer Assistants, and Orientation Aides, all of whom participate in the program along with college staff and faculty members. The format of the program includes dramatic representations of issues of harassment and assault, followed by small-group discussions of these issues.

•Programs on sexual assault, gender sensitivity, and peer harassment that Residential Life staff are encouraged to facilitate for students in their living units are a mandatory part of Collegiate Fellow pre-school training. Programs for students previewed by Collegiate Fellows include: George Holt on ‘Healthy Sexuality,”” Homophobia/Sexual Awareness,” and Safe Zone training sponsored by Open Voices.
