Oregon State University is committed to preventing all forms of sexual violence and providing a campus environment that fosters a culture of respect and healthy interpersonal relationships. We believe that every member of our university plays a role in creating a community where violence in any form is not tolerated.
Sexual violence – in the form of sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking – negatively impacts the lives of survivors and those around them. People of all genders, races, cultural backgrounds, religions, socioeconomic levels, marital status, abilities or levels of education can experience sexual violence.
Take Back the Night is just one event of many during Oregon State University's recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). It's our chance to declare as a community that sexual violence will not be tolerated.
