Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) Program

The Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) Program is taught by a certified Emmanuel College Campus Safety Officer and empowers female students, faculty and staff to combat various types of assaults by providing realistic self-defense tactics and techniques.

This empowerment is taught through four basic principles: education, dependency on self, making one's own decisions and the realization of one's own power. The objective of RAD is to develop and enhance self-defense options for women. The course begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing to the basics of hands-on defense training. The classes provide women with the knowledge to make educated decisions about resistance.

For more information about RAD on campus or to determine when the next course will run, please contact the RAD coordinator in the Campus Safety Office at 617-735-9710.
