  • The Mission of Rape Advocacy, Counseling, and Education Services is to deconstruct rape myths and empower victims and survivors of sexual violence through advocacy, counseling, education, crisis intervention, and activism. We also work with non-offending significant others, allied professionals, and the community at large to end all forms of sexual violence. We believe that working to end sexual assault, a widespread form of oppression that primarily victimizes women and children, is essential to building a world free of all forms of oppression.

  • Roger Ebert's Film Festival, also known as Ebertfest, is held every April.  Dates for the 2017 festival are April 19-23, 2017.
