Not Anymore Letter and Instructions
MECA is a caring, creative community of highly committed students, outstanding faculty, and dedicated staff. We pride ourselves in providing an engaging and enlightening educational experience for students. We know that such an experience requires a safe and healthy student environment. To that end, we are requiring that you view Not Anymore, an online interpersonal violence prevention program from Student Success™. This video-based program will provide critical information about Consent, Bystander Intervention, Sexual Assault, Dating and Domestic Violence, Stalking, and much more. Not Anymore will help you better understand how vitally important these issues are and what you can do to help make our campus safer.
