Nicholls State University takes very seriously its responsibility to provide a safe campus environment and to educate students about sexual assault and other safety concerns. The university sponsors educational programs concerning sexual assault. These programs are designed and delivered by the Nicholls Student Educators and Leaders, a group of students helping students with concerns associated with life as a college student. SEALS members and trained professionals also are invited to present to non-classroom groups such as to fraternities, sororities, athletes or residence hall groups.
The Division of Student Affairs sponsors open programs dealing with crime prevention and personal safety which includes sexual assault prevention information. A Task Force on the Prevention of Sexual Assault meets periodically to review the effectiveness of educational programs and to propose new programs and sponsors an annual Rape Awareness Week.
