Western Carolina University’s Division of Student Affairs will coordinate WCU’s annual Red Zone campaign during the fall semester.
The Red Zone refers to the period of time early in students’ first or second years at college during which they are at higher risk of unwanted sexual experiences. Campaign activities across campus are designed to educate and empower students to help protect themselves and others from sexual assault.
Red flags, ribbons and posters will be displayed across campus in September to raise awareness. Information regarding sexual assault, red flags in relationships, campus and community resources and upcoming events will be in the gallery on the second floor of A.K. Hinds University Center through Friday, Sept. 30.
Students, staff and faculty also are invited to make the Red Zone pledge to take a stand against sexual assault and dating violence.
