Like Carolina students before us, we follow the Carolina Way. It defines our traditions: drinking from the Old Well, setting fire to Franklin Street, holding a door open for a classmate, and hating everything that is Duke.
For more than two centuries, students have made our school a better place for the next group of incoming students. It’s now our turn to make our mark on our campus and temporary home.
Sexaul assault affects every student at UNC. One-fourth of all female undergraduates will be assaulted by the time they graduate UNC. One in fifteen male undergraduates will be sexually assaulted as well. It’s time for a change.
We need to make strides to end sexual violence at UNC. Learn about the issue, become more than a bystander and make a conscious choice to improve our campus culture.
Carolina Conscious unites every student across UNC-Chapel Hill to take a stand together against sexual assault and interpersonal violence.
Carolina Conscious revolves around a simple question:
Why don’t we treat each other with the same respect off-campus as we do on-campus?
Consent before sex begins with a “yes” but needs mutual understanding and acceptance.
It requires listening and respecting another partner's wishes.
Every part of our campus is standing together to increase open and honest conversation about sexual consent. It's as simple as a conversation to make sure you and your partners' wishes are in-line.
By staying conscious of listening to, speaking with, and understanding your partner, you can make sure that every experience is equally enjoyable.
