Pre-exposure prophylaxis (or PrEP) is when people at very high risk for HIV take HIV medicines daily to lower their chances of getting infected. PrEP can stop HIV from taking hold and spreading throughout your body. It is highly effective for preventing HIV if used as prescribed, but it is much less effective when not taken consistently.

2018 RAINN Day




April 5 is RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network) Day. RAINN Day is the day of action for sexual violence awareness in college campuses.

As stated by RAINN.org, sexual violence is heavily prevalent in college compared to other crimes. Did you know, student or not, college-aged women are highly risked for sexual violence? According to RAINN.org, 1 in 6 college-aged women have sought assistance for sexual violence-related cases. Among both undergraduate and graduate students in college campuses, 11.2% (8.8% females and 2.2% males) have experienced sexual assault in the form of physical force, violence, or incapacitation, according to RAINN.org.

Colleges and universities are taking steps to reduce and end sexual assault, such as having campus law enforcement officials and staff members responsible for sexual assault cases.
Be sure to find out how you can help prevent sexual assault in your campus! #SAAM #RAINNDay #PacificPartnersProject

Students are at school 6+ hours a day, 5 days a week, approximately 180 days a year. This is the same amount of time they see their teachers, school faculty and staff, which puts educators in a position to become first responders to teen dating violence. How an educator responds to teen dating violence can make a big impact on how a victim heals and recovers, and it is critical to respond in supportive and empowering ways.

While Title IX requires schools to provide a campus environment that promotes safety and equal opportunity for education and employment, the Clery Act is just as important. The Clery Act requires schools to publish an Annual Security Report,  disclose crime statistics for incidents that occur on campus, in unobstructed public areas immediately adjacent to or running through the campus and at certain non-campus facilities; issue timely warnings about Clery Act crimes which pose a serious or ongoing threat to students and employees; and devise an emergency response, notification, and testing policy.
