Domestic violence isn’t confined to romantic relationships; it can affect families, friends, and all close connections. To raise awareness for Domestic Violence Awareness Month this October, the University Counseling Center is hosting interactive workshops on healthy and unhealthy relationships for university students.
In these interactive workshops, you’ll gain valuable insights into identifying and managing unhealthy behaviors across a wide spectrum of relationships, from romantic partners to family members.
Additionally, workshop attendees can contribute to the Flag Project art installation by writing messages on red and green flags. The red flags will contain words or phrases describing unhealthy relationships, while the green flags will convey language that describes healthy behaviors in relationships.
The mission of the Flag Project is to engage students, staff, and faculty in a campus-wide dialogue about interpersonal violence through the creation of a communal art project consisting of flags with messages from our university community. These flags will be on display on the lawn space in front of the Union during the week of October 16-23.
