April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month at UB (SAAM) Workshops and Events

Posted by Tim on April 19, 2021 in Community Announcements, Event, Workshops

As you may know, every April UB recognizes Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) as a time to raise public awareness about sexual violence, to educate and inspire our community to prevent it, and provide support for members of our community who have experienced it.  We are continuing last year’s online efforts so that we can continue to come together as a community, from a safe social distance. 

Please visit our Sexual Violence Prevention and Response page to view upcoming workshops, programs and events, and share it with your students. We would like to highlight our upcoming event The Men’s Story Project (MSP). The MSP takes place 4:00-6:00 PM on Thursday 4/15/21. In the MSP, men, boys, and folks who identify in any way with masculinity publicly share personal stories that help transform social ideas about masculinity – so as to support health and equality for all people. This event will be held via Zoom and is free for everyone, though registration is required. We also wanted to let our community know we continue to fulfill program requests on healthy relationships and violence prevention for classes and groups in our campus community. 

Additionally, I’d like to assure you that our sexual violence response services are still fully supported. Students, faculty, and staff can continue to confidentially connect with our UB-dedicated Advocate from Crisis Services by calling or texting 716-796-4399, or emailing  You can also click the following hyperlinks for more information on sexual violence prevention, response, and policies.
