Taking care of your personal health also includes sexual health, such as safer sex options, STI prevention, preventative care and services, healthy communication with partner(s), and feeling empowered to make safe and informed decisions.
The College encourages students to educate themselves about sexual misconduct and how to play an active role in ending it. The Student Wellness team offers educational programs regarding sexual misconduct to the community upon request, and support to students who have concerns regarding sexual misconduct.

"From the start, I found the test inclusive towards different identities (race, gender, orientation, disabilities, etc.) ...Moreover, I consider myself well-read in regards to sexual assault-related definitions and statistics, but I still learned a lot from the video and pre/post testing, especially seeing whether I got it right or wrong. In all topics, hearing student's diverse stories and encounters was incredibly eye-opening and impactful towards engaging my awareness and consciousness towards these occurrences." - Student Leader, Class of 2015
