“Can I Kiss You” Program, hosted by Residence Life – Oct 22, 2015

Residence Life is proud to host the “Can I Kiss You” program facilitated by Mike Domitrz on Thursday, October 22nd  2015 at 6:30pm in the Totem Park Ballroom. “Can I Kiss You” is an interactive and immerse one-person show that provides student with skills for addressing consent, bystander intervention, and supporting survivors of sexual assault.

Mike Domitrz is a critically acclaimed author and one of the leading experts on teaching students about the positive impact on the many issues surrounding sexual assault and healthy intimacy. Mike’s unique ability to connect with audiences of all ages and demographics results in presentations that are both entertaining and educational. Mike turns what is often labelled as a “silent” issue into an engaging and thought-provoking event. While most people simply “make their move” on a date, Mike shows students why “Asking First” and getting consent makes all of the different. In addition, students discover how to “be a friend” by appropriately intervening in potentially dangerous situations with their peers. In doing so, each student discovered how to properly provide support to survivors by “Opening the Door” for those they care about.

We are pleased to offer this event, free of charge, to any student at the University of British Columbia. We also have a Facebook Event page here.
