Public Health

     Sexual violence is a public health issue, just like any other form of violence.
      Victims1 of sexual violence face both immediate and chronic psychological consequences as a result of the trauma they endured, as well as having their social life impacted and turning to high risk behaviors. This has long term consequences for a large percentage of the student body in terms of their health and wellness--not to mention their academic performance.
