#ibelieveyou Week

#ibelieveyou week is an important time for us. It opens the semester with messages of love and support for survivors, letting them know we believe their story. This year’s #ibelieveyou week will take place both virtually and on-campus. Virtually, join our team on Instagram by posting a photo of yourself with a group of friends wearing denim to show your support. Tag us in your post/story on September 22 to show your support! In-person, look for little messages of support around campus and post/share them with friends and family. You can visit our Instagram page by clicking here.

P2P Support Drop-In Launch Week

This week also marks the launch of our P2P Support Drop-In. Our P2P Support Drop-In is a space where students can come get gender and sexual violence support, ask questions about any type of harassment or discrimination, or just come chat with our team about anything! To lean more about our drop-in, visit our drop-in webpage.

We also have plenty of exciting virtual events to celebrate our drop-in opening! Check out the list of events below. To register, please do so through their respective ExperienceBU pages.
