Sexual Violence Prevention at HPW:

Our goal is to create a healthy and respectful campus culture that does not tolerate violence.

We do this by:

  • fostering a culture of consent
  • promoting healthy relationships and healthy relationships skills  
  • increasing capacity of our communities to be active bystanders to disrupt rape culture

Sexual Violence Prevention Program:

Thinking of You is a monthly outreach activity that aims to promote a culture of care by providing a safe space peers to create messages of support through art. We also provide free information about resources available on and off campus.

Sexual Violence Prevention Workshops & Discussions:

Attend an Open Workshop: Health Promotion & Wellness offers a variety of open workshops each semester. Feel free to drop-in to any workshop.

Request a Workshop: Health Promotion & Wellness provides free workshops to the SF State Community. Please submit a request at least three weeks in advance of the date requested
