West Liberty University is taking part in a national initiative that asks college students and members of campus communities to make a personal commitment to take a stand and be a part of the solution to campus sexual assault, the It’s On Us campaign. This initiative seeks to inspire everyone to see it as his or her responsibility to do something, big or small, to prevent sexual violence. We have taken the Pledge.
