Ohio University hosts inaugural It’s On Us National Student Leadership Summit [VIDEO]

Ohio University’s Athens campus hosted the It’s On Us National Student Leadership Summit Aug. 2–5, 2019. The first summit of its kind in the United States to combat sexual-assault aimed towards college students, the event stems from a national movement that was launched in 2014 following recommendations from the White House Task Force to Prevent Sexual Assault.

The campaign emphasizes the importance of engaging everyone in the conversation to end sexual violence. This video features students from Ohio, Pennsylvania, and surrounding areas sharing what they learned at the conference and what they hope to take back and apply at their universities.

Survivor Advocacy Program: Three full-time licensed professional social workers serve our students throughout the year. They have a crisis hotline that is available 24/7 at 740-597-SAFE (7233).

Counseling and Psychological Services: The staff at Counseling and Psychological Services are licensed, fully-confidential and support students 24/7 at 740-593-1616.

Ohio Health Campus Care: The OhioHealth Campus Care clinic, located on the 1st and 2nd floors of Hudson Hall, has trained, confidential clinicians who offer a wide range of services. The quick care clinic is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

If a student wishes to report an incidence of sexual misconduct to the university, they can contact Equity and Civil Rights Compliance at 740-593-9140 or equity@ohio.edu.

If a student wishes to make a criminal report regarding sexual violence, for incidents occurring on campus, they can contact our Ohio University Police Department, 911 (emergency) or 740-593-1911, Scott Quad 135 or police@ohio.edu.

If a student wishes to make a criminal report regarding sexual violence for incidents occurring off-campus, they can contact the Athens Police Department: 9-1-1 (emergencies) or 740-592-3313.
