VolUNTary Consent


The consent campaign is a movement within UNT to spread awareness on what consent looks and sounds like. VolUNTary consent is sexy and is required prior to all sexual activity. This campaign is for our entire Mean Green Family.

What is consent?

Consent means words or actions that show an active, knowing, and voluntary agreement to engage in each instance of sexual activity. Consent cannot be obtained by force; coercion; manipulation; threats; or when an individual administers any substance to another person, without the person’s knowledge, that intentionally impairs the ability of the person to voluntarily consent. Consent is absent when the sexual activity in question exceeds the scope of previously given consent. Consent may be revoked at any time.
