Aurora Center sees increased traffic; calls for more funding

Monday, April 9, 2018

The Aurora Center at the University of Minnesota is calling for more staff, programming and funding during April in response to increasing student needs.

The Fund Aurora campaign will go through the second half of April, coinciding with Sexual Assault Awareness Month efforts, which started with an on-campus candlelight vigil Friday night. Several campus groups are also running separate efforts to support the center. 

The Aurora Center, a campus resource offering treatment and education on sexual assault, saw around a 62 percent increase in traffic from spring 2017 to spring 2018.
