Instead of spouting the typical statistics, Rachael Holloway wanted to foster a positive effect during October, Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Several students, including Holloway, the Fellow for Community Engagement and Service Learning at Westminster, gathered in Mueller Student Center on Oct. 8 to discuss how they could positively affect campus issues that revolve around domestic violence and sexual assault.
“I wanted to talk about positively affecting the issue instead of giving the usual statistics,” Holloway said.
The central theme of the event was respect, and what that means as a word, in connection to relationships and what a respectful college campus could look like.
