Count on Cougs

Count on Cougs is a violence prevention program that focuses on making our campus safer by empowering bystanders, like you, to become active members in reducing gender-based violence (intimate partner violence, stalking, and sexual assault). This workshop was developed specifically for our WSU community and is a required program for incoming Pullman students.

Count on Cougs will teach you to recognize warning signs and acts of gender-based violence, so you can take action to help someone at risk of experiencing harm. During this workshop, we’ll also talk about the resources WSU has to support you and the wellbeing of all Cougs. After training, you’ll feel confident in your ability to recognize violence and be motivated to prevent it from happening.

It’s your responsibility to attend a workshop during your first two semesters. Register for a workshop today!
