It’s On Us to Support Survivors: A Workshop for Graduate & Professional Students at MSU
COGS and MSU’s Prevention, Outreach, and Education (POE) Department teamed up on April 5th to bring graduate students this dynamic workshop during It’s On Us Week of Action. In this session, we discussed how you can be a supportive person to an individual who is a survivor of sexual assault or relationship violence. We also examined ways that you can be supportive as a friend, as a colleague, and as a mandatory reporter (for those of you that are required). We are grateful to all who joined us for this crucial conversation!
