Out of the bounds of what I would be comfortable doing

I know there’s some things like [...] Consent Weeks [...] and stuff like that, and I think that could be a good way to [...] reach [...] certain groups of people for sure. But, like, as someone [...] with anxiety, like having a quick chat with someone in the hallway [...], who I’ve never talked to [laughing], about the sexual assault policy w-would be [...] out of the bounds of what I would be comfortable doing. And even, like, picking up a brochure I see might be something that I’d be too anxious to do. Um, so like even the resources that are out there might not be accessible to everyone that way.

Recommendations

  • Display QR codes providing immediate access to on- and off-campus supports and policy information in high-traffic areas on campus.

  • Use an app or other tool that allows students to anonymously ask questions about sexual violence and university policies against sexual violence.
