Recent USU Campaign Part Of Campuswide Efforts To Improve Response To Sexual Violence


A recent “Start by Believing” campaign at Utah State University marks the latest of a yearslong effort to improve how the school responds to sexual violence and harassment on campus.

The university reaffirmed its commitment to that initiative on April 7, when it set up booths on campus (and off, at the nearby Latter-day Saint Institute) to allow members of the campus community to take a pledge on Start By Believing Day. The booths were also on hand at USU Eastern’s campuses in Price and Blanding the same day.


Now, USU’s actions on this front are getting noticed nationally. End Violence Against Women International will recognize USU, along with five other organizations across the country, for participating in Start By Believing in a virtual event on April 29. Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
