BUPD Teams with Greek Life for Sexual Assault Awareness

April 11, 2017

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). The Bradley University Police Department (BUPD) is joining forces with Greek organizations on campus to raise money for a local organization and bring awareness to sexual assault prevention on campus.

The BUPD, Panhellenic Counsel, Interfraternity Council, and National Panhellenic Council organizations are participating in the #BUSAAM campaign to bring awareness to Sexual Assault Prevention and to benefit the Center for Prevention of Abuse.

For the rest of April, the groups will be taking donations at all Greek sponsored events and at the BUPD offices to be donated to the Center for Prevention of Abuse. In addition, many fraternities and sororities are hanging large teal ribbons on their front doors to show their support, a display is set up in the in the lobby of the BUPD, and officers are wearing special teal patches on their uniforms to bring awareness to SAAM.

The Center for Prevention of Abuse was chosen as the beneficiary because of the close relationship the university has with the organization. This is a local non-profit aimed at helping all people – women, men and children – live free from violence and abuse.
