According to, more than one in four students in grades 6–12 in the US experience some form of bullying. On top of that, it’s estimated that one in five women are sexually assaulted during their college years, prompting President Obama to launch the It’s On Us campaign to end sexual assault.

That’s why on Tuesday, April 7, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the Bianco Room, the Pace Community will join together for the Second Annual Bullying and Sexual Assault Symposium to explore the problems and hear the solutions. This year’s theme: Perceptions and Realities in 21st Century Society.
