Dating and Domestic Violence On Campus — How to be Safe.

Shed Jackson

September means back-to-school for college campuses across the nation.  Universities like Clark Atlanta University (CAU) are teaming with students, faculty and staff, all bustling to register for classes, meeting new and old friends as well as taking in an array of activities on and away from campus. 

This year's classes return at a moment when the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights is in the process of investigating how some campuses have handled their sexual assault claims.  While some Universities will inevitably find the subject a difficult one to broach, CAU has, since the inception of "The Call to True Beauty," openly educated students about the signs and statistics associated with dating violence, as well as sexual assault.

In the Wednesday, September 3 edition of The Call to True Beauty, Show Host Daphne Walker will speak with CAU Chief of Police Thomas Y. Trawick Jr. and Dr. Joy Bradford, director of CAU's Counseling Center on how the campus has created a forum for discussing these sensitive issues and, most important, what college students and parents should know about protecting themselves from dating violence and sexual assault!

Tune in, Wednesday, September 3 at 6:00 p.m..  You can join the conversation during the live broadcast by calling in with your comments or questions:  (404) 880 - 9255 and interactive on Twitter or Facebook by using the hashtag #TCTB
