Several organizations and community partners are working together on the Truman State University campus to raise awareness about the sexual assault epidemic plaguing our college campuses. Lindsey Owens, an Health and Exercise Science student at Truman State University, put together the event which includes a self-defense class, an all-male talk led by Dr. Curt Brungardt of Fort Hays State University, a movie screening, and Take Back the Night Walk led by President Troy Paino.
“The effort was definitely worth bringing the Truman campus together,” Owens said. “I truly believe only when we unite and come together as a school, we will be able to combat the issue of sexual assault.” According to the recently released White House report on rape and sexual assault one in five women are sexually assaulted while in college. Sexual Assault Awareness Week will be held on the Truman State University campus from April 14-17, 2014.
