Finlandia University has teamed up with the National It’s On Us campaign to raise awareness about the realities of sexual violence on college campuses. A generous grant of $25,708 was awarded to the university during the 2016-2017 period from the Michigan State Police Let’s End Campus Sexual Assault initiative, and is funding the Finlandia It’s On Us campaign event series. “The national It’s On Us campaign was started in 2014 as a means to encourage college students to stand together against sexual violence. Through our programming during the 2017 academic year, Finlandia students will recognize that we all have a role to play in prevention and that small actions lead to meaningful results. It’s on all of us to speak up, intervene and support survivors of sexual assault,” says Dean of Students, Erin Barnett.
