Sketch portrait of Middle Eastern female

I heard about lots of incidents but not the policy

To be honest, I’ve heard a lot of girls telling me about incidents that happened, but I never heard about the policy and I’ve been at SMU for two years and no one has ever discussed it, to my knowledge.

Recommendations

  • Use multiple formats to deliver accessible education about the SV/SA policy during orientation and at least once per semester
