It’s On Us

It’s on (all of us) to stop sexual assault. UW-Green Bay’s Health Educator on Sexual Violence Prevention Dana Stueber, Mike Schmitt of ATS, Residence Life, Chancellor Miller, and many students and staff members helped create a video that begins the campus dialogue regarding this national initiative. It is part of sexual violence prevention training coming this fall to UWGB faculty, staff and students. Funding was made possible by the Aurora Health Care Better Together Grant.
