News coverage: University to participate in sexual assault survey
Dean of Students Brenda Amenson-Hill and Student Government Association President Vanya Koepke talked about proactive approaches to addressing the issue of sexual assault for a story that aired Friday (Jan. 23) on WBAY, Channel 2. UW-Green Bay volunteered to be one of 14 schools nationwide that will participate in a Department of Justice-commissioned survey on the issue this spring. While she hasn’t yet seen the survey questions, Amenson-Hill told reporter Sari Soffer that the instrument will look at issues including UW-Green Bay’s resources, programming and overall climate surrounding sexual assault. The survey will be helpful, Koepke said. “I think that’s a really great opportunity for students to voice and take this confidential and anonymous step,” he said, “because that’s how we defeat these issues.” Full story.
