This pilot project builds on research and early design proposals developed by a group of six undergraduate students engaged in a DiPi-sponsored independent study. Four students carried the project forward with research and design work focused on creating educational materials and decision aids for sexual assault survivors and secondary survivors. We want to help identify, access, and navigate campus and community resources; aid in the recovery process; and prevent sexual assault from happening. The overarching goal is to empower individuals, inspire proactive responses, and provide skills for navigating challenging conversations.
