Listening sessions scheduled to address, discuss issues of sexual violence

From: End Sexual Violence Program Committee

Established through a charge from Presidents Tim Sands, the End Sexual Violence Program Committee comprised of students, faculty and staff has been created and is hosting a series of community forums to address and discuss issues of sexual violence at Virginia Tech.

To launch this year-long endeavor, the committee is hosting listening sessions to solicit input from students regarding the university climate and to hear their views and ideas for transforming the culture around sexual violence at Virginia Tech. Individual students may attend an open listening session and student groups, organizations or departments may also request a focused listening session, specifically for their organization or group.

There are currently two open listening sessions scheduled:

  • November 15 from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. – Brush Mountain A & B in Squires Student Center
  • November 19 from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. – Newman Library Multipurpose Room

Registration is required to attend the listening sessions. To register for an Open Listen Session, click here.
