Sexual Assault Awareness

Sexual violence impacts millions of people of all backgrounds and ages. According to RAINN, people under the age of 30, particularly girls and women, experience sexual violence at higher rates. The University of Texas at Dallas takes sexual misconduct seriously.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and the Galerstein Gender Center collaborates with community organizations, Title IX Initiatives and campus departments to promote an environment free of sexual violence, provide resources and education on sexual assault-related issues, and provide support to survivors.
