We are excited to announce that we have been working with SLANT Design for the past few months, and have designed a new logo for Associated Student Government. After several iterations based on feedback from Senators and Cabinet members, our final logo is complete. Thank you to all who spent time on this project, specifically SLANT Design and the ASG Communications Committee!
It’s On Us is a rallying cry inviting everyone to step up and realize that the solution begins with us. It’s a declaration that sexual assault is not only a crime committed by a perpetrator against a victim, but a societal problem in which all of us have a role to play. We are reframing sexual assault in a way that inspires everyone to see it as their responsibility to do something, big or small, to prevent it. We are asking everyone to create an environment, be it a residence hall, a party, a club, or a sports team, or the greater college campus, where sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported.
Take part in this campaign and help us fix this crucial issue both on Miami University’s campus and campuses nationwide. This week, March 2nd – 6th, is Miami’s It’s On Us Awareness Week. Be sure to use the hashtag #ItsOnUsMiami to show us how YOU make a difference!
