April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. See the Month at a Glance for information on events happening in April.

The Well offers educational programming to the JMU community rooted in primary prevention of power-based personal violence, including sexual assault, dating violence and stalking.

Power-based personal violence affects individuals of all ages, genders, sexual orientations races, abilities, socioeconomic statuses, and religions. Our educational programs are open to all students, as we present through an intersectional lens and show our support for all survivors. 

Primary Prevention

Educational programs rooted in primary prevention seek to build protective factors and decrease risk factors for the perpetration of power-based personal violence. Strategies include promoting and sustaining the development of healthy sexuality, healthy relationships and socially just institutions. These programs are comprehensive, inclusive, sustained, interactive and informed by best-practices in the field of violence prevention.
