SOUTHEASTERN STUDENT AFFAIRS NAMES AS TRI PARISH RAPE CRISIS
AS COMMUNITY PARTNER
HAMMOND -- Southeastern Louisiana
University’s Division of Student Affairs has named the Tri Parish Rape
Crisis Program of the 21st Judicial District Court as its 2003 Community
District Attorney Scott Perrilloux and
Tri Parish Rape Crisis Program Director Heather Monday, community education
and volunteer coordinator for the district attorney’s office, accepted
the award at the Division of Student Affairs’ recent honors convocation.
Vice President for Student Affairs Brad
O’Hara said the Community Partner award recognizes a long-standing relationship
between Southeastern and the Rape Crisis Program. The program, he said,
regularly participates in fraternity and sorority programs, assists the
University Police Department with Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) courses
for women, and provides information tables at a variety of campus events.
O’Hara said Monday and the University
Police Department have presented RAD courses,special training in sexual
assault awareness, prevention, and defense, to more than 100 students.
“It would be impossible to count the
number of hours Ms. Monday has devoted to enhancing the safety of the Southeastern
community,” he said.
“One of the most noteworthy results
of Southeastern’s partnership with the Rape Crisis Program has been the
remarkable amount of Southeastern students who have become victims’ advocates,
Rape Crisis counselors, and active volunteers,” O’Hara said. “We look forward
to a long partnership.”
