It's On Us to Stop Sexual Assault
Owens Community College is committed to providing safe and dignified campus and learning center environments that are free from sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, and sexual assault and its harmful effects.
It's On Us is an education based campaign focusing on sexual assault awareness and prevention on college campuses. It's On Us aims to shift the way we think about sexual assault by inspiring everyone to see it as their responsibility to do something, big or small, to prevent it. It is committed to creating an environment where sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported.
You can assist in the College's efforts to provide a safe learning environment for all students by taking the It's On Us pledge to make a personal commitment to help keep women and men safe from sexual assault.
In the event that a student or employee is in immediate danger, call 9-1-1.
