Schedule A Presentation

No matter what student group you belong to, class you teach, or what department you work for, everyone can benefit from learning about gender violence and its prevention.

We offer a range of presentations related to sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking, that vary from 30 minutes to 6 hours. Presentations are free of charge for all University of Minnesota students, faculty, and staff and we can accommodate evening and weekend dates throughout the year. Presenters include staff and/or trained student Violence Prevention Educators.
