Plymouth State University is working with a local crisis intervention agency to raise awareness about sexual assault.

The university is partnering with Voices Against Violence to create a bystander intervention policy to help prevent sexual violence and provide support to victims. Similar to programs at the University of New Hampshire and elsewhere, the bystander policy encourages students to safely intervene when they see a risk of danger.

Meg Kennedy-Dugan, director of Voices Against Violence, says her organization will provide resources to students, faculty and staff.
