January is Stalking Awareness Month

In recognition of Stalking Awareness Month, LLCC Compliance & Prevention and Student Life will be sharing information and resources with students throughout the month of January. Faculty and staff are also encouraged to increase their awareness related to stalking to contribute to a supportive environment for our students and a safe community for us all. For instance, did you know:

  • The 2018 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey found that nearly one in six women and one in 17 men have experienced stalking victimization (statistics were unavailable for gender non-conforming and non-binary individuals through this study).
  • The majority of stalking victims are stalked by someone they know. Many victims are stalked by a current or former intimate partner, or by an acquaintance.
  • The college provides support to students who have experienced stalking, intimate partner violence and/or sexual assault through the LLCC Compliance & Prevention office (217-786-4682 or shelby.bedford@llcc.edu). Information regarding resources and support options is also available through LLCC’s confidential advisors (217-786-2590). Remember to refer students experiencing stalking, sexual assault, domestic violence or dating violence to these support resources.

More information is available through the Stalking Prevention and Resource Center and LLCC’s Sexual Violence Resources webpage.
