The Sexual Violence Coalition is a collaborative effort by concerned Sycamores to bring the seriousness of this problem to the forefront on the Indiana State University Campus. Our goal is to reduce sexual assault risks and affect attitudinal and behavioral changes through: meaningful education programs, prompt and compassionate response to incidents of sexual violence and coordination of relationships between campus and community systems. We challenge faculty, staff, students and community members to work toward the elimination of violence toward all people on our campus.

How many times have you been at a party or with a
small group for friends and witnessed something that made you feel
uneasy? Maybe it was
someone pushing another person to leave with them, or someone drugging

Stepping in to find out what’s going on could prevent that
someone from further danger and let him or her know you’re available to
To be clear:
This isn’t about making decisions for people and it does not mean
that you have to get in a fight.
It could be as simple as interrupting the situation.
Asking “where’s the bathroom” could provide an opportunity for
someone who is feeling cornered to slip away, or just checking in with
the person you’re concerned about.
It could mean telling a friend that you don’t like the way he or
she is acting, or it could mean calling the police.
The point is, if you see or know of a violent or abusive situation do something! BREAK the SILENCE!
It could change the course of someone’s life forever.
