Consent: The Differences Between Sex and Rape - Ending Sexual Assaults On Campuses 

Consent logo

The Northwestern District Attorney's Office and partners have developed materials to raise awareness of sexual assault on campuses. Representatives of the Office and area colleges including the University of Massachusetts; Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke and Smith colleges and Greenfield Community College met at an initial conference in Spring 2013. Since then, the University of Massachusetts has adapted some of the campaign materials and video public service announcements to help educate students about how to prevent sexual assaults from occurring as part of the UMatter@UMass campaign. Posters are displayed on local college buses and in dormitories. Links to view the videos and download PDFs are at right.
