Sexual Violence Advisory Committee (SVAC) Open Forum

7PM-9PM MSU Union Ballroom (second floor)

Please join us for an in-depth conversation regarding MSU's efforts to raise awareness and improve responses to relationship violence and sexual misconduct on campus. The conversation will include small group discussions about critical questions, faciliated by small group mediators. Small group discussions will then be followed by a large moderated group conversation.

Critical questions to be discussed: 

  • Thinking about contexts where power dynamics are involved, such as employment situations, academic programs or extracurricular programs, and what are specific areas of concern?
  • What are your expectations around communications from the university regarding this issue?
  • What suggestions do you have for improving communication with the campus community about the work that MSU is doing in this area?
  • What on-campus prevention and education efforts are you aware of?
  • What suggestions do you have for improving prevention and education efforts at MSU?
