UNT joins national effort to prevent sexual assault

As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, a nationwide effort to educate communities about ways to prevent sexual assault, the University of North Texas will host several events throughout April to raise awareness of and encourage conversations about sexual assault.

The remaining Sexual Assault Awareness Month events at UNT include:

  •  April 30 Take Back the Night from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Willis Library Mall.

Additionally, throughout April, the North Texas Daily will feature a weekly column of letters from sexual assault survivors.

Maureen McGuinessMaureen McGuinness, left, dean of students and assistant vice president for student affairs, opened up the column series with a letter discussing the recent increased attention on sexual assaults on campus, details about what UNT has done to increase awareness of sexual assault on campus and her personal experience assisting survivors of sexual assault.

“The Dean of Students Office at the University of North Texas is here to help any person who has been a victim of sexual assault or intimate partner violence, no matter when it occurred,” wrote McGuinness in her letter. “You do have a voice and we can help with classes, counseling, medical assistance, reporting to police or under the Code of Student conduct and we can get you connected to resources off campus too.”

The Dean of Students Office has also developed a Twitter account, @untconsent2prev, to give facts, resources and more information about sexual assault and Sexual Assault Awareness Month at UNT.

  • Learn more about resources about reporting sexual assault, details about what to do if you or someone you know is sexually assaulted and more.
