SKYCTC JOINS IN ITS ON US NATIONAL CAMPAIGN TO END CAMPUS SEXUAL ASSAULT

When you hear about a problem such as sexual assault, it s easy to mentally condemn such an act and then to leave it to somebody else to resolve the problem, but the Student Government Association at Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) is encouraging faculty, staff, and students of the College to look up, step up, speak up and stand up, if they see signs of inappropriate sexual behavior.

SKYCTC, along with the other 15 colleges in the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS), have joined with colleges across the nation to combat sexual assaults on college campuses through the national It s On Us campaign.

The faculty, staff and students of the College are going through a thorough online training provided by Campus Clarity that encourages each person to recognize the non-consensual signs of sexual assault, identify situations in which sexual assault may occur, intervene in situations where consent has not or cannot be given, and to create an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported. Students are also encouraged to take a pledge to do their part to stop sexual assault.

During the month of October, SKYCTC is also hosting agencies such as Hope Harbor and the Barren River Safe Space to speak on sexual assault and domestic violence prevention.
