Just more awareness, really

Just more awareness really. Like, I played sports, and even when you're at those events and they're talking about the policies and what's going on and all of the information, no one's really engaged or paying attention while you're sitting there with your teammates. You're laughing and you’re talking. I totally think it should be something that you should have to be questioned about to show that you're actually learning information and knowing what's going on with the policy. Because, I've been here for five years and I've never read anything about the policy and I was never told about it.

Recommendations

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