Let’s Make Consent a Conversation

Let's Make Consent a Conversation

This year, the Make Consent a Conversation awareness campaign will be visible throughout campus through posters, workshops, speakers, and more. We want to encourage students  to have open discussions about practicing clear consent and about ways to feel more comfortable expressing consent. While the majority of Oberlin students tell us they’re aware of the college’s Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy, many also tell us they still have questions and aren’t sure how to practice clear consent.

We hope to change that.
