First Year Campus Acquaintance Rape Education

Main Content

First Year Campus Acquaintance Rape Education (FYCARE) workshop is an interactive discussion on campus sexual assault. Nationwide, 1 in 5 women will experience a sexual assault during her undergraduate years. Males can be sexually assaulted, too, though at a much reduce estimate than women. The perpetrators of these assaults are most often acquaintances—friends, classmates, or dating partners—of the victim. Despite this, many discussions of sexual violence focus on the ways individuals should protect themselves from strangers. FYCARE, on the other hand, focuses on the ways that all students can be involved bystanders who can look out for the safety of one another.
