    Walk a Mile in Her Shoes

OASIS information is meant to be educational in nature and to help increase dialogue and discussion about this important topic. Refer to ETSU’s Student Sexual Misconduct Policy for specific ETSU policy information.

OASIS (Outreach & Advocacy: Sexuality Information for Students) is a program of the Counseling Center at East Tennessee State University.  OASIS is dedicated to sexual assault, relationship violence, and gender violence prevention through education and outreach about healthy sexuality and relationships.  Our programs are designed to serve the needs of the ETSU population with information, education, training, advocacy, counseling, and referral services.

OASIS offers presentations and workshops to ETSU classes and student organizations on a variety of topics relating to students' lives, including but not limited to:

 

  • Consent
  • Being an Active Bystander
  • “Ask the Sexpert”
  • Body Image and the Media
  • Gender Violence/Gender Dichotomy

FemSex!

OASIS facilitates FemSex!, a nationally recognized semester-long (noncredit) student workshop on female sexuality. 

 

Counseling & Support Services

OASIS additionally provides services to students who have been directly affected by sexual and relationship violence. OASIS provides a safe, confidential atmosphere in which survivors can explore: 

  • Individual counseling
  • Crisis counseling
  • Advocacy services
  • Connection to other resources on campus or in the community

Our counselors can support survivors as they choose to discuss their experiences and explore their options about medical treatment and legal and/or judicial action.  Our counselors can accompany a survivor through the medical treatment and collection of evidence.  Whether or not a survivor chooses to report, an OASIS counselor can serve as an advocate and provide education to promote informed choice.
