April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, a time where we highlight the history and culture of sexual violence to educate, raise awareness, and rejuvenate prevention efforts. This month we have chosen the theme Beyond Words, which illustrates our need and readiness for action against sexual violence. This theme aims to acknowledge those who choose to share their stories while also honoring victim-survivors who may choose to remain silent.  

Please join us for the following events throughout April. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram (@UofUWellness).

Contact us with any questions you may have.
