SAEC/SAAC DAYS OF ACTION
Social Media Campaign

April 17-18. 2019 | #StudentAthletesInAction

In partnership with the NCAA Board of Governors Student-Athlete Engagement Committee
and NCAA Divisions I, II and III Student-Athlete Advisory Committees (SAACs)

Hello Student-Athlete Leaders,

As you may know, April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. For the past several years, the NCAA Divisions I, II and III Student-Athlete Advisory Committees have joined to promote awareness on issues surrounding sexual violence on college campuses. This year, the NCAA Board of Governors Student-Athlete Engagement Committee would like to increase awareness of the issue by conducting a two-day social media campaign April 17-18 in conjunction with the National SAACs’ Day of Action. The committee plans to use Day 1 (Wednesday, April 17) to provide education on sexual violence awareness and prevention and Day 2 (Thursday, April 18) to highlight the efforts of institutions and athletics departments in this area.

For the campaign to be successful, we need as many student-athletes as possible to post about campus efforts to raise awareness about and to prevent sexual violence. The collective voice of the student-athlete population starts with YOU. Below, you will find an outline of how the social media campaign will look. Please keep in mind that the campaign is designed to work on campuses of all sizes. The general idea should be consistent across all three divisions; anything beyond that is up to your creativity.

The goal is to use social media to provide information about educational resources related to sexual violence awareness and prevention and to highlight the efforts of schools and athletics departments in this area.

Planning

The two-day social media campaign will take place April 17-18.

Each student-athlete planning to partake in this campaign should prepare before April 17.
