A Guide for Talking about Relationships, Consent, and Sexual Violence

We ask that you join the movement to eradicate sexual violence by talking with your child about issues such as healthy relationships, consent, bystander intervention and supporting friends who have experienced sexual violence.  This webpage was created to help provide guidance and resources for having these conversations and for learning more about University initiatives, policies and support resources.
