It's On Us Week 2016 will be held Oct. 24-28
Miami University will hold events for It’s On Us Week 2016 from Oct. 24-28 on the Oxford campus. “It’s On Us” is an awareness campaign working to stop sexual assault and interpersonal violence on campuses across the country.
President Barack Obama launched the initiative to make sexual assault prevention a priority at schools across the country. It encourages students to speak out and take action to prevent sexual assault crimes.
Miami encourages students to take appropriate action if sexual assault happens. Miami’s website provides information about sexual assault and where students can find help.
