It's On Us | Mount St. Joseph University

Mount St. Joseph University is committed to demonstrating respect and concern for all persons as we are called to do in our mission.

It's On Us

This is about us. Sexual and interpersonal violence affects people of all ethnicities, gender identities and expressions, sexual orientation, and ages. Because our Mount community emphasizes values, integrity and social responsibility, the It's On Us initiative is here to help end sexual and interpersonal violence.
