Sexual Assault Prevention

According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center 1 in 5 women and 1 in 16 men are sexually assaulted while in college.

Although sexual assaults are not common at UTA, students on campus still take precautions to avoid this from happening to them. I spoke to Captain Mike McCord, who informed me that police security escorts are available to students who would like to be walked to their car, dorm, or any place appropriate to protect them from danger. I also spoke with Mechanical engineer student, Amrita Nemani, who suggests students to never walk alone, and if possible walk with a group of friends that you know.
