Our motto, ‘Not for One’s Self, But for One’s Own’ expresses the care and safety we collectively strive to provide for each and every member of our community. As we begin this new academic year, we remain resolute in our shared commitment to end sexual violence in all forms at Tulane.
Last year, as we shared the results of the climate survey, we launched the Wave of Change campaign to inform and engage the community and to identify effective ways to improve prevention while changing the aspects of our underlying culture that make sexual violence possible. Thanks to the insights and recommendations gained through the university community, this fall we are able to institute new programs and activities that are informed by the whole community. But, we need you — students, faculty, staff, administrators — to be part of this ongoing work to create lasting change.
The most important ingredient in making the communal change we all seek — both at Tulane and in the world — is the power we have as individuals. This is the driving force behind All In: Tulane’s Commitment to Stop All Sexual Violence. The damaging impact of sexual violence is something that affects us all and it will take all of us to bring about lasting change.
At Tulane, we are ALL involved. We are ALL instrumental. And we are ALL IN to stop sexual violence in our community.
