UTSA social work students to bring awareness to perceptions related to sexual harassment
(April 11, 2017) -- Graduate social work students from The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) will hold a community presentation focusing on the prevalence of sexual harassment through the use of Photovoice. The presentation will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 18 in the H-E-B University Center Harris Room (HUC 2.212) on the UTSA Main Campus.
Photovoice participants and fellow UTSA students will present their photographic depictions of their perceptions of the causes and potential solutions for sexual harassment and engage in open discussion with the community on the subject. A representative from the Rape Crisis Center will also speak and resources will be available for guests.
"A vital aspect of being a UTSA student is learning to be a concerned, aware, socially responsible member of the UTSA community," said Candace Christensen, UTSA assistant professor of social work. "Our event is aimed at raising awareness and creating critical dialogues among the UTSA community as to how we can best address sexual assault among students."
The mission of the Advanced Community Practice Photovoice Project is to advocate for increased awareness and response to sexual assault within the UTSA community through empowerment and respect to diversity, using symbolic photographs and fostering dialogue.
UTSA is ranked among the top 400 universities in the world and among the top 100 in the nation, according to Times Higher Education.
