The Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolutions hosted Take Back the Night on Thursday, April 27, at the Tomas Rivera Conference Center. The event allowed students to speak up about their sexual abuse. Keynote  speaker Staceyann Chin, spoken-word poet and activist, spoke about her own experiences, read from her memoir and as well as two poems. At the end, everyone gathered for a candlelight vigil to show solidarity to victims of sexual assault where they chanted “Bring back the light. Take Back The Night.”
