Preventing Sexual Assault

Eighteen months ago, the U’s Beta Theta Pi Chapter launched a sexual assault education and prevention campaign in partnership with the Rape Recovery Center. Because of its success, the chapter received a $3,200 grant from Students of the World to aid in their efforts and was recognized by the “Dr. Phil” show. “The largest issue surrounding sexual assault education and prevention is that our society shies away from candid conversations about it,” said Mitchell Cox, 2014 chapter president. The Salt Lake City native joined Beta Theta Pi because of the chapter’s focus on values and leadership. Now an honors graduate of psychology, Cox works for Beta Theta Pi’s administrative office and continues to volunteer with sexual assault prevention programming with the Rape Recovery Center and Students of the World.
