EDUCATIONAL CAMPAIGN: SEXUAL ASSAULT
"The recent chalk messages about sexual assault have made it clear that the university needs to launch an intensive campaign to make the university community aware of the resources available to prevent sexual assault and the resources available to help victims of sexual assault.

"This morning (Jan. 25), I met with members of the universityís Sexual Assault Task Force and charged them with moving this educational process forward. I have asked them to call on any other university resources needed to help design, promote and execute this program and to do so as quickly as possible. I have asked Sandy Cox, director of the Counseling Center, to lead this effort.

"I would also like to call upon interested and concerned members of the university community to join us in this educational effort so that no victim of sexual assault will ever feel alone at EIU. Many offices on Easternís campus -- including the Office of Student Standards, the University Police Department, the Office of Civil Rights and Diversity, the Counseling Center and the Sexual Assault Counseling and Information Service (SACIS) -- are deeply committed to assisting students who have been the victims of sexual violence. Staff members in these offices consider reports of sexual assault to be of utmost concern and seriousness. They listen to the victims, connect the victims with helpful resources and report the incidents to the appropriate authorities.

"It is my hope that this educational campaign, led by Ms. Cox, will be positive and productive, leading to a much greater awareness of the many resources available at EIU to assist sexual assault victims. I look forward to working together as a campus community to accomplish this goal."
