The Sexual Respect Initiative Independent Projects submission window ended Oct. 7. Please visit here if you would like to complete another option.

Want to create your own project that aligns with your interests or professional development goals, either on your own or with a small group?

You might:
- Organize a workshop for yourself and a group of students;
- Plan and moderate a discussion with faculty or administrators at your school;
- Host a film screening;
- Convene or participate in a reading group; or
- Create art (e.g., visual, poetry or prose, video, multimedia, music, dance) around the themes of sexual respect.  (See the 2015 Arts Option for examples.)
The ways to utilize the Independent Projects option are nearly endless – it’s really up to you.
Sorry, projects completed before now or that are part of classwork are not eligible. 
Take me back to all options.
