During Hawk Week, all new students will participate in Jayhawks Give a Flock, KU's bystander intervention program. Students participating in this program will gain with the knowledge and skills to take action when they see behaviors that put others at risk for sexual assault. These skills include intervening in potentially violent situations, speaking out against rape myths and sexist language, and supporting survivors of sexual assault. More information incluing the time and location of your training can be found by downloading the KU Guide App and navigating to the Jayhawks Give a Flock event on the Sexual Assault Prevention and Education Center page.

Are there women/femme-only sessions available?

Yes. KU recognizes that some students who identify as women may prefer to go through a training with other women/femme individuals due to personal religious reasons. Please indicate during the check-in process if you would like to attend one of these sessions during check in.

Is this program required for all first-year students?

Yes. All first-year students are required to complete Jayhawks Give a Flock. However, if you feel this program will be a detriment to your emotional health and well-being due to a personal history of sexual or intimate partner violence, you may schedule an alternative in-person program with the confidential Care Coordinator at care@ku.edu.

All other questions about attending the program should be directed to the Sexual Assault Prevention & Education Center at sapec@ku.edu.
