University Police and Titan Recreation are sponsoring a March program designed to teach women awareness and defensive techniques useful in threatening situations.
Rape Aggression Defense, or RAD, is a three-session, 12-hour program offered at colleges and universities throughout the country. It covers risk awareness/recognition, as well as risk prevention, reduction and avoidance. The program, which has been offered on campus since 2001, will be taught by Officer Katie Cappuccio.
Sessions are open to 20 individuals on a first-come, first-serve basis, and are scheduled 1-5 p.m. Fridays, March 4, 11 and 18 in the Student Recreation Center’s Harvey McKee Room 130.
A $25 program fee pays for the RAD manual available on the first day of class; a certificate is provided upon completion of all three classes. Workshops require comfortable clothes and tennis shoes. To reserve a space, call University Police at 657-278-4308 or register online.
