APSU hosting screening of sexual assault documentary on Sept. 24
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – At 6 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 24, Austin Peay State University will host a screening and panel discussion on the documentary “The Hunting Ground” in the Clement Auditorium. The film, which premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, examines sexual assaults on college campuses and how college administrators ignored or failed to appropriately respond to these serious allegations.
APSU students and community members are encouraged to attend the free screening. A resource table and counselors from the APSU Counseling Center will be available at the event.
The screening is sponsored by the Sexual Assault Response Team, the APSU Office of
Student Affairs and the APSU Women’s and Gender Studies Program.
The screening is a “GOVS” Means Respect initiative. The goal of “GOVS”
Means Respect is to use the University’s collective scholarship to sustain and facilitate dialogue around domestic violence and sexual assault prevention education.
