Where is the Love?
It's On Us, Nova: Survivor Support
It's On Us, Nova: Consent PSA
It's On Us, Nova: All Male PSA
We believe that love is essential to the life of our community. It is in the caring of self and others that make us strive to our fullest potential. Throughout the year you will see this logo to indicate that we will be learning how to extend an unconditional hand of friendship to each other as well as how to keep ourselves healthy and safe.

As a bystander, you have a choice. You have the opportunity to provide assistance, to do nothing at all, or to contribute to a negative behavior. We all have a responsibility to look out for one another, especially in the moments that matter. Click on this logo to download and sign the pledge to end sexual violence. #itsonusnova
There are many ways to get involved in the conversation about sexual violence at Villanova! Most important, however, is that every member of the Villanova community feels empowered to step up and in step in to prevent sexual violence from happening. In addition to a variety of activities and events planned throughout the year, there are a number of ways that you can get involved:
I want to be supportive but don't have a lot of time:
- Be part of a student-driven movement for change on social media. Follow It's On Us, Nova on Facebook and Instagram
- Invite your friends and the student organizations that you are involved in to follow these social media accounts.
- Read the monthly sexual violence feature article in Campus Well. Want to receive it directly to your phone every month. Download the app and select Villanova University!
- Speak up when you hear friends, roommates, and classmates perpetuate myths about sexual violence.
- Step in when you see friends, roommates, acquaintances, and strangers taking advantage of someone who is not capable of giving consent.
- Be a good listener to a friend who discloses an experience(s) of sexual violence to you.
I want to be supportive and have some time to give:
- Register for bystander intervention training and hone your skills for effectively intervening in situations of concern. e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot today!
- Encourage the student organization(s) that you are involved in to host bystander intervention training for their members. Let your student leaders know to e-mail email@example.com to schedule a training for their members.
- Mark your calendar for the Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Healthy Relationships Awareness Month, and Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Attend these events yourself and encourage members of student organizations in which you are involved to attend them.
I want to be supportive and involved in sexual violence prevention:
- Take on a leadership role in sexual violence prevention and apply for POWER (Peers Offering Wellness Education & Resources).
- Apply for a year-long internship in Health Promotion in events management or publications (e.g., Stall Street Journal).
- Dedicate academic research, paper and project attention to issues related to sexual violence. For second readers in senior-level capstone projects related to sexual violence, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
