Prevention Video: Step Up and Stop It
CSUF is invested in keeping our students safe. One of the dangers college students face is sexual assault. Anyone, women and men, can be the victim of forced sex or sexual assault. Coercion and/or intimidation are often used to compel non-consensual sex. Acquaintance rape, or date rape, accounts for nearly 90% of sexual assault incidents as reported by our students.
The most common date rape drug is alcohol. "Drunk sex" from one person's perspective might be "rape" from another person's perspective. California Penal Code clearly states that having sex with a person who is intoxicated is illegal and may be punishable with a prison sentence.
At CSUF prevention of sexual assault is a priority, serving to create a safe campus populated with an aware and responsible student body. As part of our prevention efforts, the WoMen's Center created a video entitled "Step Up and Stop It." This ten minute video features survivor interviews, men's perspectives, prevention strategies, suggestions for survivors and services available on our campus.
