Introducing Our Essential Guide: Navigating College Tours with a Focus on Sexual Assault Prevention

#WeRideTogether is thrilled to announce the launch of our latest project: a comprehensive guide titled "Navigating College Tours: Asking Important Questions About Sexual Assault Prevention and Education." This guide has been a collaborative effort between #WeRideTogether and esteemed partners Callisto and The I Am Journey, who have worked tirelessly to create a resource that addresses a crucial aspect of the college selection process.

The purpose of this guide is to empower college-bound students and their parents/guardians with the knowledge and tools they need to prioritize safety during college tours. We understand that choosing the right university involves considering many factors, and safety should be paramount among them. With this guide, we aim to provide essential questions that prospective students and their families can ask during college tours to gain insight into the institution's approach to sexual assault prevention and education.

Inside you will find an overview of sexual assault, statistics surrounding sexual assault on college campuses, a vital discussion of prevention and campus safety, as well as Title IX information. The guide offers preparation for your college tour, curated questions, and additional related resources with a log section for your note-taking convenience. 

We believe that this guide has the potential to make a significant impact on the college selection process for countless individuals. We encourage you to share it widely with your networks and communities, whether through email newsletters, social media platforms, or other channels. Together, we can ensure that this essential information reaches those who need it most and contributes to fostering safer environments on college campuses.
