SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. -- Lake Superior State University, in conjunction with the Student Athlete Advisory Committee and the LSSU Title IX office, will host a Stand UP tailgate before the LSSU volleyball game on Friday at 6:30 p.m. against Northwood.

The Stand UP Campaign is a collaborate effort between Lake Superior State University's Title IX Office and Sault Sainte Marie's Diane Peppler Resource Center.

This campaign focuses on sexual assault prevention and active bystander/up stander invention. This multi-faceted campaign includes a series of on-campus sexual violence awareness events, an educational video series, student focus groups, on-campus training opportunities for students, faculty, and staff, and multiple community outreach events.

Laker Athletics is committed to the Stand UP Campaign and the Up Stander training provided to athletes, coaches and staff. Being an UP Stander means having the courage to Stand UP, speak out, and step in to prevent discrimination, harassment and sexual violence on our campus.
