Some people may already know a lot about sex; others may know only a little; however one thing’s for certain: “It” is on a lot of people’s minds. We at the S.A.G.E. Center understand this and recognize that abstinence, safe sex, sexual identity, sexual orientation and sexual fulfillment are important things to talk openly about.
Having a hard time in your relationship? Did something happen last night that you need to talk about? The S.A.G.E. Center in conjunction with Voices Against Violence is here for you. The campus of Plymouth State University is considered to be a safe campus to live, work and play. However, the reality in all communities large or small is that sexual assault, dating violence, sexual harassment, stalking and hate violence can occur. In fact, national studies show that the first six weeks of a young woman’s college career is when she is most likely to be the victim of sexual violence.
The S.A.G.E. Center along with our local crisis center, Voices Against Violence, is committed to educating the campus community while advocating for and supporting students affected by violence.
Gender is fundamental to whom we are as people, yet there is still controversy when it comes to defining it. The S.A.G.E. Center approaches gender as a social construct rather than the physical and biological differences that distinguish males from females. Providing educational opportunities that address sex, gender, race, class, and their intersections, the center promotes a safe, supportive and equitable environment for all students regardless of their gender, gender identity, or gender expression.
Last but certainly not least, we recognize that equality and diversity are essential at Plymouth State University. Because of this the S.A.G.E. center strives to address inequities and barriers that keep students from learning and working to their full potential. We are a resource center for everyone regardless of your sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, race, culture, class, religion, ethnicity, age or ability.
