R.A.D. Training Available to Students and Staff at Fairfield University

With the seriousness and unfortunate frequency of campus rape in the United States, we encourage individuals to check out R.A.D. training available on campus in October.

R.A.D. is the largest women’s self defense training network in the United States and Canada, and is the only self defense program endorsed by the IACLEA (International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators). This is a 16-hour “hands-on” course which meets or exceeds all National Coalition Against Sexual Assault guidelines. Its objective is to “develop and enhance the options of self defense so they may become viable considerations to the woman who is attacked.”

Dates of instruction are Tuesday and Thursday, October 16 and October 18, and Tuesday and Wednesday, October 23 and October 24, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Barone Campus Center Oak Room. Participants must attend all four sessions. Seats are limited; you can reserve your space by contacting Frank Ficko at fficko@fairfield.edu or Sergeant Rob Didato at rdidato@fairfield.edu. This course is being offered at no charge.
