  1. As conversations about sexual violence become more common in public discourse it is important that we consider survivors of sexual trauma and their loved ones. Engaging students in conversations about sexual violence that challenge rape culture can be beneficial to many students, but for some students these conversations are personal and can be triggering when brought into the classroom. The addition of content warnings to the syllabus and an advanced reminder of when this content will be covered are responsible ways of giving students the option not to engage.
