Kent State Stands Up
This is a pilot campaign to promote shared respect and responsibility in keeping our Kent State community safe and healthy. We are piloting campaign materials in the Eastway complex (Manchester, Clark and Allyn) during spring 2018. Kent State Stands Up is designed to educate and increase awareness of sexual violence as well as what we can all do as members of our community to look out for one another and keep Kent State safer.
Kent State University is committed to the prevention of sexual violence within our university community. Learn about the signs that could lead to a sexual assault, the definition of consent, warning signs of unhealthy and abusive relationships and what stalking looks like. Recognize the behaviors that are not okay. Understand campus policy on gender/sexual harassment and know your rights. Communication, education and knowledge is key to preventing sexual violence.
Students have an overarching reach with other students. Reinforce the need to make sexual and relationship prevention a priority within the university community. Communicate the need for healthy relationships and that it is easily understood. Recognize potential violent and/or dangerous situations and know when to intervene without putting yourself in danger. Communicate and recognize risk factors that influence behavior. Know who to contact for help and support.
We all play a role in keeping Kent State University safe. Develop and/or increase peer support. Learn how to safely disengage someone from an unhealthy relationship. Positively influence others in the development of a healthy relationship. Provide support and recommend resources for healing. Get involved in university prevention and awareness activities and encourage others to do the same. Be an effective agent of change.
