Chilly morning, chilling perspectives outside Winslow Reply

By Katie Peters – Arts Editor

On Thursday, Nov. 14, the hill outside of Winslow was covered in small paper flags representing “the relative percentage of survivors at Lasell University” in the context of Intimate Parter Violence. The data from the Association of American Universities annual Campus Climate Survey and the number of Lasell’s undergraduates were used to show how women, men and LGBT+ individuals on campus are affected by this issue according to the survey. This project was completed by Professor Karin Raye’s Title XI Interns and the Men’s Baseball Team.

The statistics for this project came from the Association of American Universities’ Campus Climate Survey that came out Oct. 15, 2019. The survey sampled responses from 108,221 undergraduates.

Almost every group is affected by sexual misconduct. Confidential resources on campus are The Counseling Center and Health Services. Other resources include Lasell’s Title XI Team, Campus Police, Residential Life, and many off-campus facilities.
