"What is Consent?" "And what is it not?"
is hosting Consent workshops on each campus this semester to help students
better understand what consent means, in terms of intimate relations; --how to
effectively communicate consent and how to recognize when it is absent. The
student workshops focus on small group experiential exercises in exploring and
practicing sexual decision-making and will be co-led by student facilitators.
Definitions of what constitutes sexual misconduct and how to report it will
also be covered. Nov 3-Rockville. Nov 7- Germantown. Nov 14- TPSS.

Over the last several years, there has been increased attention around sexual violence and sexual misconduct on college campuses. As a result, The Maryland Higher Education Commission, through the passage of new legislation, Maryland House Bill 571, requires that all higher education institutions in Maryland conduct a campus climate survey to evaluate the environment on campus. Montgomery College is committed to fostering a safe and inclusive environment for students, faculty and staff, and guests. To this end, on February 8 through February 26, you are invited to participate in SpeakUpMC Climate Survey on Sexual Violence and Sexual Misconduct. This survey will allow us to better understand the campus climate related to sexual violence and sexual misconduct. Understanding our challenges, as well as the positive behaviors of our students, will allow us to focus on future educational and/or programming initiatives, as well as reviewing policies, intervention, and response protocols.
