The Bee Aware Team is a group of Eastfield employees and students working to prevent sexual assault, domestic and dating violence and stalking.
Together we are training students, faculty and staff members the skills needed to prevent sexual violence. We also provide information on campus and community resources. Join us to learn more about what you can do to prevent sexual violence in our community.
Why is this so important?
Over 13% of college women report that they have been stalked. Of these women, 42% were stalked by a boyfriend or ex-boyfriend. Forty-three percent of dating college women reported experiencing abusive behaviors from their partner. (Statistics retrieved from the
National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.)
