Denim Day promotes awareness of sexual violence

First-year medical students Riley Hedin, left, and Cord Gothard share information about the human brain with elementary school students during last year’s Mini-Med School.

OSU-CHS students, faculty and staff are invited to wear jeans on Wednesday in recognition of Sexual Violence Awareness Month.

Faculty and staff members whose supervisors approve of wearing jeans may stop by the Student Lounge, Clinic Practice Administrators or in Human Resources in Main Hall 1405 at the OSU-Tulsa campus to pick up a Denim Day sticker. Staff members who wear jeans must wear a sticker.

The Denim Day campaign began 17 years ago as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual assault.
