Sexual Assault Awareness Month began as a national campaign in 2001 by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. Though social activism around the topic of sexual assault far predates 2001, the campaign has worked to educate others and advocate for survivors throughout the 21st century.

The University of Michigan’s Division of Public Safety and Security (DPSS) will participate in several activities throughout the month to raise awareness about sexual assault in recognition of National Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
