What does consent mean to you?

The McCluskey Center for Violence Prevention Research & Education (MCVP) and the Students United for Reproductive Freedom (SURF) organizations are hosting Consensual Conversations in Parlor A at the Union on Feb. 13 from 12:30-1:30 p.m.
The hour-long event will be an open discussion based on U students’ thoughts and questions about consent. Consent is frequently talked about as something simple and easily understood but isn’t actually as straightforward as it’s made out to be. We invite you to come discuss the complexities of consent and what consent means to you! Pizza, candy and more will be provided. You are welcome to stop by and leave at any point during the event.
Students also have the opportunity to anonymously submit questions about consent or submit topics they’d like to see discussed at Consensual Conversations. Those interested in doing so can submit questions and comments through an anonymous online survey or through our Conversation Hearts Valentine’s Day boxes located at both the Union’s Services Desk and Gardner Commons’ Services Desk. Conversation Hearts will be provided at the event as well.
