This morning, we all received a Public Safety Alert informing us about a physical and sexual assault that occurred this morning at Beta Fraternity House on High Street. The survivor was able to escape during the assault, reported the assault to Public Safety, and was transported to Middlesex Hospital for minor injuries.
In light of this awful and tragic information, I would like to remind everyone that sexual assault here at Wesleyan remains a problem as terrible as any this campus has ever faced, and that sexual assault is never, ever okay.
Womanist House will be providing a safe space for support this afternoon.
Additionally, Rachel Verner ’15 writes in about a gathering later in the evening and always-available resources for survivors and the community:
SART Intern, Rachel Verner, and Students for Consent and Communication would like to invite everyone to an open community meeting tonight. Our goal is to create a safe space to talk about sexual violence prevention, and what we can all do to rid rape culture at Wesleyan. We will be meeting in the University Organizing Centre (190 High Street) this evening (Sunday, March 7th) at 9pm. Please see below for a list of other available resources:
