In April, the Saint Mary’s Winona Campus united to raise awareness for sexual assault alongside the national “It’s On Us” pledge and theme Embrace your Voice. Students, faculty, and staff joined together in solidarity to support survivors by placing teal handprints on a banner to serve as a year-round reminder of our joint efforts. As the month concluded, the banner was displayed in the plaza along with teal balloons which included powerful written messages of hope and change.
Let’s renew our commitment to ending sexual misconduct on our campus. The university’s concern has always been and will continue to be protecting the safety, security, and rights of every member of our community. This is our shared challenge. All of us are and must be part of the solution – each and every one of us. Additional resources can be found on the Saint Mary’s Title IX page. To report sexual misconduct, go to smumn.edu/report.
