"Can I Kiss You?" A virtual workshop on consent and respect, Monday March 8 from 12-1 pm. This is one of the most inclusive and sought-after programs on consent, respect in relationships, bystander intervention, and addressing sexual assault.

Girlhood (It’s complicated) commemorates the anniversary of woman suffrage by exploring the concept of girlhood in the United States, but also how girls changed history in five areas: politics, education, work, health, and fashion. We argue that girlhood has an unexpected and complicated history and that girls, like suffragists, used their voices to make a difference.


Every other Thursday at 3:00 p.m.
Please join us for a virtual open forum and the opportunity to have respectful conversations about the issues of race and inequality.

Everyone deserves to have healthy relationships. But healthy relationships don’t just happen on their own—they’re built over time, with each participant actively shaping a dynamic that’s either healthy or unhealthy. What largely determines the quality of the relationship? The behaviors of each person.
Unfortunately, few of us are ever taught how to practice healthy behaviors in interpersonal relationships in the same way we’re openly taught how to drive a car or practice safe sex. This lack of knowledge leaves us vulnerable to getting caught in unhealthy relationships, something that can happen without us even consciously realizing it.
The good news is that healthy behaviors can be learned and practiced at any age, in any relationship, whether with a friend, partner, or family member. And you don’t have to completely overhaul your life in order to see improvements. Taking even the smallest step to empower yourself in a relationship can have a huge impact on creating a healthier dynamic. Here are four simple ways you can start practicing healthy behaviors in your relationships today.
