IT’S on US Jag Nation to bring awareness to Sexual Assault and Dating and Domestic Violence on our campus and across our community!
Observed in April, Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM), is an annual campaign to raise awareness of sexual assault, honor survivors and educate communities on how to prevent sexual violence. Taking the lead on sexual assault awareness and education on campus is the Augusta University Title IX Office, with the collaboration of community organizations and campus partners.
Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), observed in October, was launched nationwide in 1987, as a way to connect and unite individuals and organizations working on domestic violence issues while raising awareness for those issues. During Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the Augusta University Title IX office holds workshops and seminars focusing on healthy relationships.
