As part of the University’s ongoing prevention and awareness campaign for all students and employees, this is a physical self-defense course for women only. The objective of Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) is “to develop and enhance the options of self-defense, so they may become viable considerations to the women who is attacked.”
R.A.D. is a program that is designed to help women overcome the effects of sexual harassment and sexual violence on campus by teaching assertiveness, awareness, risk reduction, risk recognition, avoidance, and physical defense strategies.
