In honor of April’s designation as Sexual Assault Awareness month, Health Education and Multicultural Programs invite students to attend “Retaking Our Story: Reframing the Sexual Assault Conversation.” Tim Mousseau will share his struggles after being sexually assaulted and his experiences as he moved forward and learned to take ownership of his story. The keynote will take place on Monday, April 4 at 5 p.m. in the Sansbury CLC Ballroom.

It only took one letter to redefine Tim’s life forever. With a photograph and a few accompanying words, Tim was faced with the evidence of an experience he had no memory of – he discovered he was a victim
of sexual assault. Not only did he have to come to grips with this new reality, but he also had to face the nightmare of being stalked and blackmailed. The next two years of his life were a struggle of mixed
emotions and coping mechanisms, but over time he came to realize something—this was his story to tell and by telling it, he could take ownership of it. In this keynote, Tim leads a deep and vulnerable conversation on the difficult topic of sexual assault drawing from his own experiences and countless interactions with others in support groups.
