The Hutton Honors College is among the groups contributing to IU's first "Culture of Care Week" (April 9-14), six days of events focused on promoting education on bystander intervention, sexual assault, mental health, and drug and alcohol-related emergencies. The student organizers are aiming to foster a culture of care on campus in accordance with the newly passed Hoosier P.A.C.T., in which the goal is to promote an "act now; save a life" mentality. Representatives from Middle Way House and the Office of Women's Affairs with expertise in prevention, crisis intervention, and on-scene advocacy, will examine rape culture and the 3 D's of bystander intervention (Direct, Distract, Delegate) April 10 from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. Join us for a pizza supper and learn how you can make a difference and create a culture of care on campus!
