In compliance with federal guidelines and the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), the College has made available online sexual violence prevention training through a program called Not Anymore.
It is highly encouraged that all students participate in this training as it provides important information about consent, bystander intervention, sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, stalking, and much more. Not Anymore will help you better understand how vitally important these issues are and what you can do to help make your campus safer and more welcoming.
In addition to the incentive of a safer campus, completion of the online training will automatically enroll you in a prize drawing where prizes may include three-month gym membership, funds for text books from the bookstore, or voucher to college cafeteria.
The ability to recognize sexual misconduct and knowing what to do about it as either the victim or as a friend of one who is a victim will significantly help in ensuring a safe learning and working environment for everyone in the College Community.

Law defines consent as the affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity. Affirmative consent must be ongoing throughout sexual activity and can be revoked at any time. Silence, the existence of a dating relationship or past sexual relations, is not by itself assumed to be an indicator of consent. The person must act freely and voluntarily and have knowledge of the nature of the act or transaction involved.
Emmeline May authored a very simple, yet useful metaphor that help explains consent using a cup of tea: If they are unconscious, don't make them tea. Unconscious people can't answer the question, "Do you want tea?" because they are unconscious.
Simple isn't it? Please watch this video using Emmeline May's "Cup of Tea" example to help explain consent.
