Sarah Hurtado will visit the U campus on Feb. 23 to give two presentations—one to faculty and a workshop open to the entire campus community—on why violence prevention is a shared responsibility and how, regardless of your campus role, we all can make a difference in stopping harm.
Hurtado is an assistant professor in higher education in the Morgridge College of Education at the University of Denver. Her research is centered on the ways institutions maintain inequity that contributes to the perpetuation of rape culture and identifying strategies for transformative change. Hurtado said her primary goal at the workshops will be to help participants shift their thinking so they recognize the shared responsibility in preventing and addressing sexual violence.

Hurtado’s visit is being sponsored by the McCluskey Center for Violence Prevention Research & Education and the Martha Bradley Evans Center for Teaching Excellence.
