Awareness and Equity in Athletics

Sierra College is proud to host several events to raise awareness surrounding sexual and gender violence.

Every February, our students and employees come together at our RiseUp event. This is a space where students and employees send a loud and clear message that sexual harassment and sexual assault will no longer be accepted as “business as usual.” At this event, our athletic teams join in solidarity to rally in a parade for this cause.
