Started in 2015, USAY has spearheaded the movement to more effectively address sexual assault on Yale's campus. 

 

Our Mission

1. IDENTIFY AND ILLUMINATE FACTORS THAT SUPPORT AN UNHEALTHY CAMPUS SEXUAL CLIMATE;

2. REINFORCE, FOSTER, SUPPORT, AND ESTABLISH A UNIVERSITY-WIDE COMMUNITY OF PERSONS SEEKING TO IMPROVE THE CAMPUS’S SEXUAL CLIMATE;

3. ENSURE THE INTERSECTIONALITY, INCLUSIVENESS, AND OPENNESS OF SAID COMMUNITY;

4. DEMONSTRATE THAT LEADERS AND INDIVIDUALS FROM ALL NICHES OF YALE COLLEGE ARE ACTIVELY AND THOUGHTFULLY CRITIQUING AND ANALYZING SEXUAL CLIMATE.

5. ENCOURAGE A CULTURE IN WHICH INDIVIDUALS NOT ONLY PRACTICE RESPECTFUL SEXUAL BEHAVIOR, BUT ALSO ACTIVELY DEMAND IT FROM OTHERS
