Denim Day – Sexual Assault Awareness Month
April 26 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
In 1992, a rape conviction was overturned because the victim was wearing tight jeans, supposedly indicating that she gave consent because the perpetrator could not have taken them off without her help. We know it does not matter what you are wearing – there is never an excuse for sexual assault.
We invite all students, faculty, and staff to wear denim on April 26 as a visible way to take a stand against sexual violence while spreading awareness about the importance of preventing it. Stop by the Plaza on the Springfield Campus to pick up a Denim Day pin or button as well as information about important campus and community resources. Contact email@example.com to learn where you can obtain buttons and pins at other OTC Campus locations. College employees must obtain supervisor approval to wear jeans on April 26.
This event is sponsored by Project HEAL. Project HEAL, which stands for Help, Educate, Advocate, and Listen, is a coordinated community approach to reducing sexual assault, dating or domestic violence, and stalking on college campuses in Springfield, Missouri. The goal of this project is to unite Missouri State University and Ozarks Technical Community College in the common pursuit of making schools as safe as possible while providing support for those affected by violence.

Occasionally students encounter situations in their lives, such as depression, grief, test anxiety, relationship conflicts, substance abuse, and stress that throw them off track. Counseling Services staff offers in-person and distance counseling services for currently enrolled college students. Services are free and confidential.
