Too many displays give out negative vibrations

Personally, I feel like too many displays is not good because they just give out negative vibrations like, "this is what happened to me." That’s why having some testimonials where they just say their emotions, this is what they underwent, and this is how they overcame it. That gives some strength to people who are going through this, and it can give some strength for them to report efficiently.


  • Offer fictionalized but representative examples of how disclosures and reports to the university have been handled.

  • Don't overhelm students with policy materials. Plan an approach to increasing policy awareness that provides essential information and resources at dedicated times and locations. Consider potential triggers when developing and implementing educational/awareness materials.
