Sexual Violence Awareness & Education
The College encourages students to educate themselves about sexual violence and how to play an active role in ending it. The Health Education team offers educational programs regarding sexual violence to the community upon request, and support to students who have concerns regarding sexual violence.
All Wellesley College students are encouraged to compete Not Anymore, an interactive online education program that will provide you with information about sexual violence on college campuses and how to be an active bystander, as well as opportunities for personal reflection. Not Anymore will also provide you with helpful resources available to you at Wellesley College and in the community. The program takes less than 90 minutes to complete and can be accessed here.
Resources for Survivors of Sexual Violence
There are many resources available to support students who have experienced sexual violence, both on-campus and in the surrounding community. For a brief handout with the contact information for those resources, including those who are confidential (have limited reporting obligations), please click here.
