In observance of National Sexual Assault Awareness month in April, the University of Texas Police at Houston is hosting three sexual assault awareness presentations. The 30-minute presentation, Speaking Up: Breaking the Silence on Sexual Violence, examines the impacts of sexual violence and outlines protective factors to help prevent it.
UT Police has scheduled all three sexual assault awareness presentations at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Apr. 1, Apr. 15, and Apr. 29. Anyone interested in attending can register through this Zoom link.
Additionally, the UT Police Threat Management Team, which assists in the safety, health and welfare of those who work and study and MD Anderson and UTHealth, supplements class offerings with resources to help those in crisis.
The Victim Resource Information packet is available on the TMT website and is a resource for victims of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. In it contains reporting options, information about protective orders, investigations and disciplinary procedures.
If you or someone you know is experiencing threats of violence, UT Police encourages you to file an official report to your local law enforcement authorities or by contacting UT Police at 713-792-STOP (7867).
Speaking Up: Breaking the Silence on Sexual Violence is one of several class offerings that UT Police provides. You can find a class calendar and a full list of safety classes under the Safety Classes card on the UT Police website on the Campus Safety section of utph.org.
Departments and work groups within MD Anderson and UTHealth can also request classes for their team by contacting the UT Police Community Outreach Team at 713-563-7794 or email@example.com.
