Students Confront Violence on Their Campus

In the past three months alone, there have been 4 reported incidents of sexual-violence on the John Carroll campus. There have also been reports of racist graffiti, and homophobia within the student body. About 400 people attended a town hall meeting held by the university on Friday December 3 to address the issues and concerns that have arisen from these events. On Monday, students organized an open forum to voice their thoughts and feelings and to stress their commitment to address these issues. Both the university and students have made it clear that the only major changes in actions & attitudes of the student body must come from students themselves.

A letter by a JCU student expressed a need to go beyond warnings to women and address core issues of male dominence and hold men accountable for their actions.

Students have also planned a rally on Thursday, December 9, at 12:15pm on the JCU quad. The rally will bring survivors, allies, friends, family, faculty, and staff together to speak out against these incidents - and to generate positive social change through the formation of new anti-oppression groups and activities on campus.
