  2. Presentations

    One of the many services the VPIC provides to the UNH community is the Bystander Presentation. This presentation is structured in a way to spread awareness and educate others on statistics and important concepts related to sexual assault and rape with a focus on female victims. It covers some recent studies and cases while defining specifically what sexual violence and associated behaviors are in order to encourage students to intervene in a pro-social and safe way when appropriate and make the UNH community as well as our society a better and safer place for everyone.

    Bystander Presentations are mandatory for Freshman and will be given over the course of the semester. Information will be provided via e-mail.
