Students to kick
off initiative at
By CASSANDRA BALFOUR
One in four women and one in
ten men will experience sexual
assault during their four years in
Armed with these statistics,
the support of various University
departments and their own per-
sonalized networks and talents,
four seniors are undertaking a
sexual assault awareness cam-
paign called "I Will," which will
be unveiled Monday at the annual
student athlete charity event,
Their goal is to help educate and
empower the community to stop
what is characterized as a "silent
epidemic"across college campuses.
With guidance and backup
from the Sexual Assault Prevent
and Awareness Center, the Office
of Student Conflict Resolution
andtheAthletic Department, LSA
seniors Elisabeth Hindert, Josh
Buoy, Seth Klapman and Yonah
Liebermam - who is a former
Daily columnist - are launching a
series of public service announce-
ments at campus events and on
the campaign's website, which
also debuts Monday.
They'll also be facilitating
short workshops and targeting
student groups to raise aware-
ness. In addition, they're teaming
up with the Athletic Department
to design teal-colored Adidas
Michigan gear, the symbolic color
of sexual assault awareness.
"What we're trying to do is
start a conversation around sex-
ual assault because it's absent on
this campus; it's absent national-
ly," Buoy said. "It's a taboo topic,
and it's so pressing."
Citing the viral "It Gets Bet-
ter" campaign aimed at isolated
LGBTQ teens and the pink-hued
Breast Cancer Awareness cam-
paigns, the group hopes to adopt
similar methods in order to edu-
cate the entire campus commu-
nity about sexual assault. They
want to create a safe environment
for survivors of sexual assault and
Buoy emphasized that the
group doesn't want to point fin-
gers or blame anyone.
"Sexual assault and violence
takes so many forms beyond rape,
and that's what we really want to
do - we really want to educate -
what qualifies as sexual assault,
because I think so many people,
especially of the male gender,
don't know what it is," Buoy said.
"With this campaign, we're work-
ingwith everyone where theysare."
The group of seniors, brought
together through chance, a
shared goal and, in the case of
the three boys, a shared fresh-
man residence hall, are focusing
on education and dialogue. As a
result of social media campaigns,
events and film shorts shot by the
student group Filmic, which Buoy
heads as a co-creative director,
they're hoping the whole campus
will be awash in teal come spring.
Hindert's ties to the athletic
community as a former student
athlete who now works for the
athletic department helped the
group get the involvement of the
University's athletic community.
They're planning to display their
sexual assault awareness posters
at the Big House, Crisler Arena
and Yost Arena with the hopes
of tying together sexual assault
awareness with some of the Uni-
versity's most visible students.
"Imagine Tim Hardaway Jr.
slam-dunking the basket and he
has a teal bracelet on," Buoy said.
"Then you have on the poster
his 'I Will' statement, so you see
how that campus icon is makinga
commitment to this pause."
Although the group acknowl-
edges that male student ath-
letes are statistically more likely
to commit sexual assault, they
emphasized that sexual assault
is a college-wide issue and that
they're addressing the whole
community and not singling one
LSA sophomore Carly Manes,
president of Students for choice,
said her organization plans to par-
ticipate in the "I Will" workshops.
She said student groups will craft
their own "I Will" statement that
will articulate a tangible goal for
what the organization is planning
to do to stop sexual assault.
"We want tobe a part of giving
women and men who were sexu-
ally assaulted or people who are
allies the tools to combat that in
their communities and in their
own lives," Manes said.
The group aims to change how
students discuss sexual assault.
They want to challenge con-
ventional wisdom that teaches
women and men not to getsexu-
ally assaulted and steer the con-
versation toward teaching people
not to sexually assault others.
"It comes down to the bare
minimum of you can't grab a girls
butt," Hindert said. "Or, what
she's wearing doesn't define who
A recent University Police
crime alert reported that there
have been unconfirmed occur-
rences of students at off-cam-
pus parties having their drinks
spiked with drugs. Both Buoy
and Hindert said many of their
acquaintances blamed the woman
for drinking too heavily.
"That's the prime example of
the conversation that we want to
remedy, we want people to see
that crime alert and say,. 'Yes,
that's an issue' not 'Why would
she drink so much?"' Buoy said.
"A friend of mine said, 'Sounds to
me girls just shouldn't be drink-
ing drinks that people hand
them,' and that was a girl who
said that. That's the rape culture
that we live in."
Hindert added that blaming
survivors of sexual assault is still
common and that it's that attitude
that the "I Will" campaign aims
to combat on multiple fronts.
"When people hear those sta-
tistics they're really blown away,"
Hindertsaid. "But wejustwantto
get the point across that those sta-
tistics are your roommates, your
teammates, your classmates and
