Mount Union College
As part of Unite for Change (http://www.uniteforchange.com/) we got to view first hand some of things campuses are doing to address sexual violence on campus and in conjunction with the campaign. A rock star of this is our girl, Karen Petko. Karen is the Associate Dean of Students at Mount Union and a students administrator. Creative and engaged in her campus. She fostered an environment that was open and allowed students to be drawn into the discussion. She also gave out some amazing raffle prizes (including the sporty Unite for Change campaign t-shirts). Most of all her role in openly addressing sexual assault on campus tells her student population that violence is not acceptable and support exists throughout their campus community. Thank you Karen, for allowing us to be a part of that message.
