This past February, Student Activists Against Sexual Assault (SAASA)–in collaboration with IFC–hosted a screening of “The Hunting Ground” for all incoming pledges. After viewing the documentary which highlights the systemic issue of sexual assaults across college campuses, pledges participated in a discussion workshop facilitated by SAASA’s staff. InnovateTU plans to cement this workshop as a permanent fixture of fraternal recruitment, in order to ensure that all new members are informed and prepared to be active bystanders in addressing the ongoing presence of sexual assault. Beyond IFC, and looking ahead, we hope to expand this workshop into a module as a key component of freshmen orientation for all incoming students. Click to learn more!

InnovateTU hopes to implement student organization ‘accessibility officers’ to ensure that all events, advertisements, and preliminary accessibility measures are taken to ensure more inclusivity and to individuals with disabilities. Accessibility is a topic that is usually limited to education and academics; we stand by the belief that everyone should receive the equal right and opportunity to have this conversation continue into our social lives as well.
