Parents and families can assist us in developing a community of support and safety by having a conversation about alcohol use and the related decisions around intimacy. We recognize these conversations can be challenging to start, so here are some helpful tools and resources:
- USF’s 24-hour confidential sexual assault support line at (855) 227-2499.
- USF’s dedicated website for Sexual Assault Facts, Education and Resources
- Circle of 6 app: a helpful tool for discretely requesting preselected friends to intervene whenever students feel they are in unsure or unsafe situations.
- NotAlone.gov: a website containing information for students, schools, and anyone interested in finding resources on how to prevent and respond to sexual assault on college and university campuses.
Let's work together to take apart the social norm myths of drinking in college, and create a safe campus community for all.
