Students Invited to Presentation on Consent, Bystander Intervention Wednesday, Oct. 27
Student Living will host Mike Domitrz, founder of The Center for Respect, for a presentation on consent, bystander intervention and addressing sexual assault on Wednesday, Oct. 27, at 7 p.m. in Stolkin Auditorium, Physics Building.
In the program titled “Can I Kiss You?,” Domitrz will share with students specific how-to skills on asking for consent, treating every person with dignity and respect, supporting survivors of sexual assault and intervening when needed. The skills are ones that each person can immediately implement into their lives.
Domitrz, an author and speaker, has delivered this interactive presentation to hundreds of college campuses across the United States. His organization, The Center for Respect, creates educational resources and conducts trainings for educational institutions, military installations and organizations around consent and bystander intervention.
“Mike Domitrz’s presentation will engage students; offer real, practical skills on relationships and changing behaviors; and empower students for their well-being and the well-being of others,” says Quincy Bufkin, assistant director for diversity, equity and inclusion in Student Living. “We encourage students to attend and take away the skills they need to help all of us continue to build a campus of caring and respect.”
