Sexual Assault Awareness on Campus

It’s On Us is a national movement, founded in 2014 to bring attention to and reduce sexual assault on college campuses. Each semester, the Vanderbilt Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Committee (VSAAP), a branch of Vanderbilt Student Government, dedicates a week of events to emphasize the efforts that the University is making towards the cause. VSAAP will be hosting the following events this week:
