SUNY Cortland’s University Police Department (UPD) again will offer Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) training this spring as a way to prevent and defend against sexual assault.

The 12-hour course, broken down into four three-hour sessions, is free for SUNY Cortland students and employees. The class is limited to 25 participants and pre-registration is required.

The sessions take place from 6 to 9 p.m. in Brockway Hall, Jacobus Lounge on Tuesdays beginning March 18. Subsequent classes take place March 25, April 1 and April 8.

People who are interested should contact Mark DePaull, assistant chief of UPD, and include their name, College C-number, preferred email address and phone number and t-shirt size.

RAD training offers participants a comprehensive set of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques. The course starts by teaching awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance then progresses towards the basics of hands-on self-defense. All classes are led by police officers and certified instructors.

The program is supported by the InterGreek Council, the Sexual Assault Awareness and Programming Committee, Students Active for Ending Rape and a community grant from Walmart.
