The Red Zone Sexual Assault Campaign is underway at the University of Regina.
U.S. college studies have shown the first two months of the fall semester has the highest amount of sexual assaults of the year, and the U of R is well aware of its own sexual assault concers.
Roz Kelsey is the Director of the office of Gender Violence Prevention at the University, and says the U of R’s Red Zone has a plenty of programming scheduled.
She says it is important for the U of R to keep students apprised of this programming and advise them of the potential risks of sexual assault.
“I think we have an obligation as a university to make sure we have a safe, well-informed and educated environment,” Kelsey said. “So our students can function and move safely. And campus sexual assault is an identified risk for students and so we’re trying to combat that through education and awareness.”
The Red Zone programming will run until mid-November.
