Get Explicit: October 9–10, 2021

Get Explicit 101 is a mandatory program for all incoming students that addresses what it means to be a Duck by preventing sexual violence. The peer-led training includes interactive discussions about healthy sexuality, boundaries, communication, consent, social norms, sexual assault, and bystander intervention.

Get Explicit 101 will empower students to be intentional with boundaries, direct with communication, explicit with consent, and engaged as a community member to prevent sexual violence. As Ducks, we cannot simply desire that issues of sexual violence go away—we need to act intentionally and engage explicitly in prevention, which begins with understanding the context of the issue. By participating in these workshops, students contribute to the University of Oregon's goal for a safer and healthier campus community when it comes to issues of sexual violence.

We live in a complicated world constantly sending messages about what sex should be. Get Explicit 101 will help students discover both what they may want out of sex and how to express those desires in a safe and healthy way. We all deserve to feel comfortable and excited about our potential sexual experiences and be able to share them with a partner who feels the same. It's up to all of us to create a campus community free of sexual violence. We hope participants will leave this workshop feeling empowered and ready to do whatever it takes to be a Duck that cares and takes action.
