Free Party Smart Poster
Posted by On Wednesday, December 10, 2014

Party Smart GuideFinals are here. As students gear up for their end of term exams, they may also be planning to party down when they’re done. And other students may be looking forward to a last hurrah this weekend before finals officially start.

This Party Smart poster, based on Think About It and developed at the University of San Francisco by Jennifer Waryas, provides a convenient resource to help students make safe decisions about drinking.

The “Safe Party Guide” offers students tips for before, during, and after a party. It covers everything from setting a limit to using the buddy system, giving students a checklist to follow before they go out. It is perfect for dorm hallways, bulletin boards, or bathrooms.

Free Poster on the Campus SaVE Act
Posted by On Wednesday, August 6, 2014

Campus SaVE Act Any effort to eliminate campus sexual violence must involve creating and fostering a campus environment where survivors feel comfortable and confident reporting an incident. Unfortunately, according to the Campus Sexual Assault Study, only 5% of campus sexual assaults were reported to the police or campus security. Many students said that they weren’t sure how to report, didn’t want anyone to find out, or were worried that their complaint wouldn’t be taken seriously.

To create a supportive environment, the first step is to educate students, staff, and faculty about these issues and their respective roles and responsibilities — a fact recognized by recent proposed legislation andthe Campus SaVE Act enacted in 2013. Both require schools to educate students and employees on recognizing, reporting, and preventing sexual violence.

This poster helps promote awareness about the Campus SaVE Act and outlines what faculty, staff, and students need to know to fulfill their role in helping to create a safe campus community.

Free Healthy Relationships Posters
Posted by On Wednesday, June 18, 2014

Healthy_Relationship_RespectLast year, 9.5% of college students reported being in an emotionally abusive intimate relationship, and 2.3% reported being in a physically abusive intimate relationship, according to the latest data from the National College Health Assessment survey. Helping students identify potentially abusive relationships and modelling healthy relationships should be an important part of every school’s prevention program.

To that end, we’re putting up a series of three posters that were part of a healthy relationships campaign at the University of San Francisco. The posters, designed by Jennifer Waryas at USF, draw on ideas from the “Healthy Relationships” section of Think About It, each highlighting a different key component of healthy relationships: attraction, enjoyment, and respect. These tabloid size color posters are available as PDF files suitable for desktop printing.

Healthy Relationships = Respect

Healthy Relationships = Attraction

Healthy Relationships = Enjoyment

Free Posters for Sexual Assault Awareness Month
Posted by On Wednesday, April 16, 2014

SAAM_Posters_Page_2We’re already half-way through April. Hopefully, your workshops and activities centered around Sexual Assault Awareness Month have been successful. If you’re looking for other ways to raise awareness, we’ve put together a few black-and-white posters that you can download here.

They’re simple, but — we think — effective. They encourage students to educate themselves about issues surrounding sexual assault. After all, awareness is not only about giving students information, but motivating them to research the issues for themselves. We want students to become advocates!
