USC program addresses sexual violence

Posted on by

first_imgFollow us on Twitter @dailytrojan Recruiting has started for S.A.F.E. T-Alliance, a campus-wide program set to launch next spring by the USC Center for Women and Men, which aims to make the USC campus and community safer through awareness of gender-based violence.The program will also provide aid and support to members of the USC community who have been victims of gender-based violence, such as stalking, dating violence, sexual assault and sexual harassment.“The hope … is to feel safe and connected to each other, to feel responsible to ensure one another’s safety. It creates more cohesion. We are already a Trojan Family, this is just another way to enhance that and to support someone, should something happen,” said La Shonda Coleman, the director of S.A.F.E. T-Alliance.In addition, the S.A.F.E. T-Alliance will launch a leadership program for students, aimed to facilitate peer education. Thus far, there are two types of positions a student can apply for: a tier one safety liaison or a tier two safety leader.“A safety liaison has a basic knowledge of issues, campus issues and resources,” Coleman said. “They represent a group or organization on campus and keep us connected and establish a relationship with that group.”Liaisons will receive training through multiple external organizations, such as Peace Over Violence and the Rape Treatment Center, to learn how to deal with issues of common gender violence. The students will also be familiarized with the local resources such as the Dept. of Public Safety’s procedures.“We understand the importance of outside agencies and how their input is valuable. It is truly collaborative — that is the best way to describe it; it is a collaborative initiative,” Coleman said.Safety leaders take on higher leadership responsibilities within the alliance. This position requires more than the basic training because safety leaders will work hand-in-hand with staff members, help facilitate workshops and provide support to survivors of gender-based violence.Coleman said she wants the organization to focus heavily on peer-to-peer contact because she believes that it is essential for students to show their support and be a part of the solution to gender-based violence.“Why not equip students to be a resource to their peers?” Coleman said. “There is such an opportunity for peer-to-peer education. Peers are more likely to reach out to other peers.”Coleman said that the recent rape cases that have surfaced at USC just further illustrate how more needs to be done at USC to shift the way students think about sexual harassment.“It’s not OK. That is why we need a program like this to change the culture. I don’t think girls understand what sexual harassment is, some think it is normal and they shouldn’t take that lightly,” said Kelly Kinas, a freshman majoring in theatre.Coleman said that she hopes that students leaders from different cross sections within the campus will help to break this pattern of thinking.“We are looking for someone who is genuinely interested and committed to ensure campus safety and provide support in our community,” Coleman said.Kinas said she has already submitted her application to S.A.F.E. T-Alliance. Kinas learned about the program after she heard Coleman speak during one of her sorority’s Monday night dinners and applied because she feels personally invested in Coleman’s cause.“One of my theatre girls got raped outside in a car — it’s absolutely terrible,” Kinas said. “I want to help in any way that I can.”Other students have expressed support for the program because they believe a program with trained peers might help more people speak up about gender-based violence.“I would feel a lot safer on campus if this program is implemented … to have students have someone to come to if they aren’t comfortable in talking to their family or friends. It’s nice to have a place to help,” Adanna Teemac, a freshman majoring in psychology, said.Though the program is just getting started, Coleman said that as it continues to grow, it will continue to shift to adapt to the needs of the university.“We want to do our best to be a reflection of the USC community and their needs,” Coleman said.last_img read more

Men’s volleyball drops two road matches against ranked opponents

Posted on by

first_imgJack Wyett led USC with 16 kills along with four blocks, while Ryan Moss contributed 13 kills and seven digs, Gianluca Grasso added 13 kills and six digs and Tyler Resnick amounted another five blocks. After a convincing win against Grand Canyon University at Galen Center on Feb. 7, the USC men’s volleyball team suffered two road losses against Stanford on Thursday and Brigham Young University on Saturday. When asked about what it was like to play Stanford and BYU at their home courts, Grasso noted the difference in energy between the venues. The Trojans fell to the Cardinal 3-2 in a close match. USC got off to a slow start, losing the first set 25-15. However, the Trojans did not fold and found a way to bounce back in a nail-biter of a second set, winning 28-26. Senior outside hitter Gianluca Grasso led USC with 19 kills, two aces and six digs. Fellow senior outside hitters and co-captains Ryan Moss and Jack Wyett added 17 and 14 kills, respectively, while sophomore setter Chris Hall contributed 11 digs and an astounding 55 assists. Redshirt junior middle blocker Tyler Resnick defended well, coming up with five blocks, while sophomore middle blocker Kyle Gear had four of his own. Sophomore outside hitter Gabi Garcia Fernandez led BYU with 25 kills, as did freshman outside hitter Davide Gardini, who tallied 20 kills of his own. “[Those were] two very tough losses against two very good programs,” Grasso said. “Coming into the matches, we felt good, we felt prepared, and fell short. So it was disappointing for the team. The team is definitely a little down right now, but definitely looking forward to this next week of practice and to [taking] on UCLA on Sunday.”center_img USC was less competitive in a 3-1 loss to BYU. The Trojans got off to a strong start, winning a competitive first set 28-26. The second and third sets were back and forth, but USC fell short, losing 25-22 and 25-23, respectively. After failing to capture two close sets, the Trojans looked a bit deflated in the fourth and were unable to overcome an early run from BYU, losing the final set 25-13. Sophomore opposite Jaylen Jasper led the way for Stanford, racking up 29 kills, eight digs and three blocks. 29 kills is the most the Trojans have allowed to a single player this season. Sophomore middle blocker Kyler Presho had quite the game, contributing 11 kills and three blocks while hitting .562, and senior outside hitter Jordan Ewert contributed 10 kills along with 10 digs. “At Stanford, it was an environment that we were kind of used to,” he said. “There weren’t a ton of fans at the Maples Pavilion, so we kind of had to generate our own energy in that way, but at BYU it was… just awesome to play in that environment because the gym is completely packed and it’s so loud that, to communicate with the guy next to you, you have to yell.” The third set was equally exciting, with Stanford coming out ahead in a back-and-forth battle 26-24. Then, almost as if they were enjoying spiking the stakes of the game, USC took the fourth set 25-23. In the fifth and final set, the Trojans conceded the first 4 points to Stanford and were unable to finish on a victorious note, ultimately losing 15-12. After falling short of victory in two matches against two highly ranked opponents in Stanford and BYU, the Trojans are looking forward to coming home to Los Angeles to prepare to take on the Bruins on Sunday.last_img read more
