Sexual Assault Awareness Month
Sexual Assault Awareness Month is an annual campaign to raise public awareness about sexual assault and educate communities and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence. The teal ribbon and color symbolize sexual assault awareness and prevention. This week brings together an array of campus departments. The month sees a collection of programs, lectures, trainings, open to all of campus.
Prevention week is a time to increase support to our community. There are many exciting events that are scheduled during this week.
Title IX and Disability Services Q & A
We know that Title IX and Disability can seem quite complex. These sessions allow the opportunity for BCM community members to participate in a Q & A session, given quarterly to answer any question you may have related to Title IX and its procedures.
During these months communication through onscreen flyers are provided to enhance the awareness of BCM’s community members on issues pertaining to stalking, sexual harassment, domestic and dating violence.
