On July 10th, Emma Rizzo and Faith Meckley sat down for a live, in-studio interview with Andrew Kosinuk, the college’s crime prevention and community events liaison. Kosinuk is coordinator of the Rape Aggression Defense Program being offered at Ithaca College to teach self-defense to those who identify as female.
You can listen to the full interview here:
Preventing rape and other forms of sexual assault at colleges has become a hot topic, especially since the Obama administration launched the “It’s On Us” campaign in September of 2014, which the White House describes as “an awareness campaign to help put an end to sexual assault on college campuses.”
In December of 2014, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that all SUNY schools adopted a uniform sexual assault policy for all campuses. The policy defined consent as an affirmative, voluntary agreement between all participants.
“Consent is active, not passive,” the policy says. “Silence or lack of resistance cannot be interpreted as consent.”
