It's On Us Action Team

It's on us - all of us - to prevent sexual assault and other interpersonal violence. 

SUNY Cortland supports the national movement, It's On Us which challenges all of us to:

  • recognize that non-consensual sex is sexual assault.
  • identify situations in which sexual violence may occur.
  • intervene in situations where consent has not or cannot be given.
  • create an environment in which sexual violence is unacceptable and survivors are supported.

At SUNY Cortland, we expand the notion of sexual violence to include not only sexual assault, but also, intimate partner (domestic/dating) violence and stalking. The SUNY Cortland It's On Us Action Team, comprised of students, faculty and staff members, works to annually provide a variety of programs and educational initiatives throughout the year.

How can you be all in?

  • Follow SUNY Cortland It's On Us on Instagram
  • Join the It's on Us Action Team.
    • Meetings are held bi-weekly.
  • Attend and support our events throughout the year.

SUNY Cortland is committed to educating all new and current students, as well as employees, in a variety of prevention and awareness educational programs to decrease violence and maintain a culture where sexual assault and acts of violence are not tolerated. Positive bystander intervention education helps to to both prevent misconduct and create a positive campus climate. It's On US!
