The Aurora Center & ISSS Focus Group: International Students needed!

Hello international students!

You are needed and invited!

The Aurora Center (TAC) & International Student Scholar Services (ISSS) are excited to hear your voice and your opinions. We are conducting focus groups this year to provide better education and resources for international students around personal and gender violence prevention! The Aurora Center wants to create culturally-specific education and awareness around the topics of sexual assault and relationship violence.

We know from the UMNTC 2015 Campus Climate Sexual Assault Survey that international students–female and male alike–are experiencing sexual assault (5-2%), relationship violence (9-8%), stalking (6-4%), and sexual harassment (32-22%), but that a limited number of international students are aware of the resources available to them on campus and the scope and impact of these issues on their lives and communities.

This upcoming academic year, The Aurora Center would like to create a curriculum of positive prevention to address sexual assault and relationship violence specifically designed for international students. The Aurora Center intends to host a series of focus groups with international students to receive feedback and answer any questions.
