What is Turn The Campus Teal?

TTCT is the month-long awareness campaign that takes place in April across all Rutgers campuses as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. TTCT is a way to connect the university community, including survivors, advocates, students, organizations, faculty and staff in the common purpose of raising awareness and support around dating violence. By participating in TTCT we make a statement that we will work together to support survivors, help to prevent acts of abuse and violence as positive, active bystanders and speak out about dating violence and other forms of interpersonal violence.

Why get involved?

In 2018 #iSPEAK Rutgers New Brunswick Climate Survey identified that the Rutgers community is facing rates of violence in alignment with the national average for college campuses. On our campus it was found that:

  • 24% of undergraduate women and 48% of graduate women reported experiencing sexual violence before coming to Rutgers.
  • 16% of heterosexual students reported at least one instance of unwanted sexual contact since coming to Rutgers.
  • 25% of queer-spectrum students reported at least one instance of unwanted sexual contact since coming to Rutgers.
  • 20% of undergraduate Rutgers student experienced a disclosure of sexual violence from another Rutgers student.

 

This issue impacts a significant part of our community and survivors deserve our support!
