|Annie Munger '13, behind the 2011 Consent Day banner signed by Dartmouth students pledging to fight against sexual violence at Dartmouth and obtain consent when engaging in intimate relations or sexual activity.|
Consent Day started at Dartmouth College in 2003 and is now an annual signature event of the Sexual Assault Awareness Program (SAAP). Consent Day occurs summer term and is typically held on Mass Row during the afternoon and attracts hundreds of students and staff throughout the day. The event is set-up like a carnival, including snacks and entertainment and is designed to educate the campus community about the importance of obtaining consent in the context of intimate relations and to reduce incidents of sexual assault on campus through educational efforts. Various student organizations, campus departments, and community based organizations come together to staff tables, answer questions and provide information about consent and positive sexual health education. Many of the tables provide interactive activities and experiential learning games while other tables offer more passive programming and learning. Students are encouraged to visit the various tables and to sign a pledge indicating their understanding of consent and their pledge to always obtain consent when engaging in intimate relations or sexual activity.
