IUP SOCIOLOGY PROFESSOR TO LECTURE AT SRU ON ENDING VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

              SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Dr. Robert Heasley, associate professor of sociology at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and a member of IUP’s Men’s Awareness Project, will be the guest lecture to Slippery Rock University men and women on how men can make a difference in ending rape, sexual assault, violence and how they can improve relationships.

           The 7:30 p.m. Oct. 25 program will be held in the Special Collections Room of Bailey Library.

          The lecture/discussion program will offer an understanding of what needs to be done by men – and the women who love them – to end violence. The session will also provide leadership in making the world less tolerant of violence among males, between men and women, and offer ways of ending sexual violence.

          Heasley formerly taught at both Ithaca College and the University of Alaska. He holds his doctorate from Cornell University, teaches in such areas as gender and sexuality, mental health, family and conducts research in domestic and family violence, human services and social and community change.

          The visit is sponsored by the SRU Latino Student Organization, Office of Intercultural Affairs, Man2Man, a new campus organization dedicated to ending violence against women, the Office of Academic Affairs and Bailey Library.
