Alpha Sigma Alpha believes it is important to empower members to take a stand against sexual assault and to give them the tools they need to speak up and intervene in difficult situations.
The sexual assault prevention program was created to help members understand the concepts of healthy relationships, bystander intervention, self-care and consent and alcohol and risk reduction.
The program provides members with information in two ways:
- Online videos to be completed by individual members.
- The SPEAK UP program offers video-based online learning experiences on a multitude of topics. Each video is between 5-7 minutes long and is located on MyAΣA. Chapters will have the ability to determine which videos they require their members to complete each semester; however, all videos must be completed within an academic year.
- Chapter workshops to be facilitated by trained volunteers.
- In addition to the video-based online learning, each semester the chapter will host one workshop that focuses on sexual assault prevention topics. There are four workshops the chapter can select to fulfil the chapter programming. Each workshop the chapter hosts must be facilitated by a trained volunteer.
The sexual assault prevention program is an exclusive member only program. To view the SPEAK UP videos please log on to MyAΣA.
