Title IX does more than just ensure an equal playing field in women’s sports; it also protects your right to a school environment free from sexual abuse. CCV recognizes October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month with information and resources to assist anyone in our community who may be suffering the impacts of such abuse. Domestic violence, intimate partner abuse, dating violence—all are part of a syndrome that undermines healthy intimate relationships.
It is startling to realize that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men experience violence from their partners in their lifetime. To end domestic violence and sexual assault, we all need to be part of the solution. Toward that end, CCV supports the It’s On Us and NO MORE campaigns, and will provide a range of resources online and in our academic centers throughout the month to educate the community and support those among us who may be at risk of physical and sexual abuse.
