Diane Rosenfeld, director of the Gender Violence Program at Harvard Law School along with Angela Epifano, a former Amherst College student and rape survivor whose first-person story in the Amhurst College newspaper gained worldwide attention will be on campus presenting this program that will teach our community to be a critic of our social culture and also how to participate and change that culture. 

 
Diane L. Rosenfeld is a leading national expert on Title IX, she has advised the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights and the Department of Justice on legal policy regarding the obligations of schools to prevent and address sexual violence on campus.
