Working toward the ultimate goal of ending sexual violence at Tulane University, the following education initiatives are focused on empowering students.
Campus health centers play a crucial role in comprehensive, campus-wide prevention and response to sexual violence. To increase student knowledge about the intersections of sexual health, relationships, and violence, Campus Health has launched a Sex, Relationships, and Respect on Campus wallet card initiative.
By creating a clinic environment where students have the opportunity to talk about healthy relationships and consensual sexual activity, as well as disclose experiences of violence, we are helping to create a safe and supportive campus culture that does not tolerate violence. All incoming students receive this card during orientation as well as during visits to The Health Center, CAPS for Counseling Services, and The Well for Health Promotion.
The card provides information about healthy and safe relationships, the impact of violence on health, offers multi-level prevention strategies, and outlines campus and community-based support services for survivors. The back panel includes information on confidential national sexual assault, domestic violence, and hotlines/online resources.
To request wallet cards for your department, organization, class, or residence, email firstname.lastname@example.org
One Wave is Tulane's bystander intervention initiative designed to equip our community with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to intervene in situations that involve, or have the potential to involve, sexual assault. One Wave empowers each Tulanian to proactively and outwardly support norms and actions that protect from violence. Attend a 1-hour, student-led workshop to learn how to keep our peers and communities safe from sexual violence. To request a workshop, please fill out a request form here.
What is consent? How do you know if you have consent? Why is consent important? The Well has developed a consent workshop focused on answering these questions and helping students understand the complexities of consent. You can request this consent workshop for your class or organization here.
