College Outreach SAC and the College and Universities in the Middle TN area work collaboratively to develop campus sexual assault prevention research-based and best practice interventions that help to end and or reduce the incidents of sexual violence.

SAC, along with the Tennessee Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence and the Department of Health have created the Tennessee Bystander Project. This project is to raise awareness about everyone's role in preventing sexual violence in our community. Look for our ad in Nashville and Clarksville, take a selfie, and share #ISeeIDo to increase our awareness efforts. It's up to all of us to end sexual violence within our communities.

Local bars and restaurants should be comfortable, fun and safe. Customers should have a “top shelf” experience in an atmosphere of safety with knowledgeable and trained staff which equals safe, happy and satisfied customers. Bystander Intervention is an effective prevention strategy that staff can use to decrease sexual assault.
The Sexual Assault Center is hosting a bar owner roundtable on April 4, 2017, 2-3pm at Bar Louie, 314 11th Avenue South, Nashville, TN 37203 to discuss the role bars can play in intervening and prevention of sexual assaults and how we can partner to increase awareness and provide bystander training.
