Center for Women Event

The GL Sexual Harassment EPIC Task Force is providing rewards in the form of FREE  Mitchell's scoops randomly to Greek members who attend some of the Center for Women's (CFW) events this month that are bringing awareness to sexual assault.  There are several amazing events that the CFW is hosting, and the task force will be giving the free Mitchell's scoops at the end of the month after we verify each member's attendance at the events. Following are the events that the EPIC task force is supporting with rewards: Teal Talk Tuesdays, Disrupting the Culture of Violence: How to be a Prosocial Bystander training, and Tinder Nightmares: Dating in the Digital Age. To register for these events, you can check the Center for Women's website and social media for more information. Please email Asia Moore ( with a list of the SAAM events that you attended at the end of April and we will add you to the list of members who are eligible for the free Mitchell's scoop. At the end of April, the task force will be randomly picking several members from the list to receive the free Mitchell's scoops.
Greek Life members can also take the pledge to engage in prosocial bystander behavior that disrupts the culture of violence at CWRU and in the community.

Prosocial Bystander Training

The Center for Women provides training on how to be a prosocial bystander. How to be a Prosocial Bystander is an evidence-informed bystander intervention program that uses community care as the foundation of intervention. This training teaches how to identify potential violent incidents, individual responsibility to intervene, and how to do so safely and effectively in order to maintain a safe environment for all people. To request one of these workshops, you can fill out this form.
We encourage 15% of every chapter to attend the Prosocial Training!

Prevention Advocacy

The Prevention Advocacy Compliance Clery Team is committed to providing ongoing updates, resources, and support to all CWRU community members impacted by sexual violence. The Center for Women has created a guidebook that acts as a non-exhaustive overview of survivor support resources, violence prevention education, and CWRU sexual harassment policy guidelines. It continues to be updated and expanded as we respond to the needs of our community. While this provides basic information regarding sexual violence prevention and response, readers are encouraged to seek out more in-depth explanations from the information sources provided throughout the guidebook. You can access the guidebook here:

Upstander: Project Connection--Consent is Sexy

Many of us have been taught the definition of consent, but what does that actually look like? What do we actually say? In this dialogue we will talk about ways people ask for and receive consent in real terms. Also, since consent is a question, we may sometimes get a no. How do we respond to that in a way that strengthens relationships? Please join us in welcoming back Jamie Greenwolf and Sarah Ferrato as our wonderful facilitators for this dialogue.
