Students at Yale have developed an informal way of identifying rape culture on campus.
According to a Yale News article, the students formed a “rape culture” project that includes identifying and removing “rape symbols, sexist language, and racist imagery.”
They also plan to add “rape awareness” and “rape crisis counseling” to the syllabus.
The students have been meeting with students to talk about the project, which is not expected to be complete before the end of the semester.
A Yale spokesperson told the news outlet that the “project has been in the works for about two years.”
A Yale University spokesperson told Vice News that the project has been under discussion for about a year and that it was first proposed by students.
The university says that it will add “rapes and violence prevention” to its syllabus, and it is working on a new version of the syllabi that would include a section on “rape myths.”
The new version is being developed by the university’s Office of Diversity and Equity and will be released to students this fall.
