The Counseling Center at the Center for Health and Well-Being (CHWB) is offering a series of workshops to talk about issues that commonly affect college students. The workshops will cover a variety of topics, including study skills, stress, sexuality, and stigma. Attendance vouchers will be provided in case you would like to offer extra credit to students who attend.
The aim of the workshop is to give students a clear understanding of what sexual consent is and to facilitate conversations about why consent is so important. It is important that people are properly informed of consent, respecting other peoples' boundaries and not being ashamed of willingly engaging in or rejecting sexual activity. Learning about consent is also vital to identifying sexual assault and supporting survivors of sexual assault by outlining and understanding that sexual activity without consent is a crime for which only the perpetrator can be to blame.

universal human experiences, and it can also be one of the most confusing and
complicated processes we each go through. Each person grieves differently;
however, this workshop will highlight commonalities across our grief
experiences, while also emphasizing and discussing the wide variety of ways in
which our grief may progress based on a number of different factors.
