Sexual Assault Awareness Month 2024

Building Connected Communities

Each April, the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) designates a theme for Sexual Assault Awareness Month – the 2024 SAAM theme is “Building Connected Communities.” This year’s campaign calls upon us all to build connected communities as a means of reducing the likelihood of sexual abuse, assault, and harassment. Further, NSVRC reminds us that at the core building connected communities is “ensuring our communities are safe, inclusive, and equitable.” Join the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and our many campus partners in working to end sexual assault and build a safer, more inclusive, and more equitable Mount Holyoke community.

Campus co-sponsors: Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Athletics, Public Safety and Service, Community and Belonging, Health Services, Be Well, Residential Life, and Student Involvement.
