It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that the MSU Sexual Assault Program announces the MSU Women’s Council as the recipient of the 2017 Teal Ribbon Award. The teal ribbon is the international symbol promoting sexual assault awareness—the MSU Sexual Assault Program established the Teal Ribbon Award in 2008 to recognize and honor campus efforts in this realm.
Women’s Council has worked tirelessly over the years as the primary sponsor of the annual Take Back the Night events during Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April. Through the organizing of Take Back the Night, Women’s Council collaborates with multiple units, including but not limited to the MSU Sexual Assault Program, MSU Sexual Assault Crisis Intervention team, MSU Safe Place, and the Women’s Center of Greater Lansing.
It is an honor to recognize the Women’s Council and its dedication to educating our campus and community about sexual assault and relationship violence.
