Event Description:
The WSU Retiree Center’s Senior University program will host “Addressing Sexual Violence on College Campuses: Understanding and Changing the Culture” from 1:00-2:30 p.m. Mondays, March 19th through April 9th and Tuesday, April 17th, in Maxwell Hall, Room 257.

The course will explore what is going on nationally on college campuses with regard to gender-based violence (GBV) as well as what we are doing to change the culture at WSU.  The course will discuss data collected at WSU regarding incidents of GBV and how WSU’s peer education and advocacy program is changing the campus. Students will also participate in the annual Take Back the Night speak-out and rally (April 17, 2018, 6:00 p.m.). We are hoping that women and men will enroll in this class to learn more about this important topic.

Dr. Tamara Berg has taught at WSU for 22 years and has presented and published on service learning, gender-based violence, and women’s and gender studies issues. She has worked in collaboration with campus and community partners to change the culture at WSU for 20+ years.
Cost to attend this course is $40, and registration is online at /> Senior University is open to all adult learners in the Winona community, not just WSU retirees. The program is a series of non-credit short courses that are peer-led by WSU faculty, retirees and community members. The goal is to provide intellectual and cultural stimulation and growth for lifelong learners. Courses cover current events, history, philosophy, science, art, poetry, wellness, nature, politics, literature and much more.
