Help make CSUN safer for graduate students!
In 2016, reports of rape and domestic violence on CSUN's campus surged. According to the university's annual security report, 14 rapes were reported on campus -- nearly three times more than the previous year. While this may be due to an increase in the number of reported rape cases, which is a positive step forward, it calls attention to security on campus, particularly for evening and graduate students.
CSUN undergraduate students take a U100 course, which includes an overview of the resources available on campus. Students learn how to access services from campus police and the IX office, how the blue emergency lights work, and Matador Patrol. Graduate students do not receive similar training.
This is of particular concern for graduate students who take evening classes. The campus is dark when we get out of class at 9 or 10pm. We should know exactly how to access campus resources to ensure our safety and security.
Please sign this petition to demand the Office of Graduate Studies implements an abridged version of the U100 course -- a U400 course -- for graduate students.
We have the right to feel safe and secure on our campus!
