Rape Aggression Defense

R.A.D. stands for Rape Aggression Defense. R.A.D. is a program that is designed to help women overcome the effects of sexual harassment and sexual violence on campus by teaching assertiveness, awareness, risk recognition, avoidance and physical defense strategies.

The R.A.D. Objective is to develop and enhance the options of self-defense, so they may become viable considerations to women who are attacked.

R.A.D. Is the largest women's self-defense training organization in the world, and is taught at colleges and universities throughout the United States and Canada.

R.A.D. consists of 3 hours in the classroom and 10 to 12 hours of practical hands-on training, and all classes are free of charge to all female Endicott students, faculty, staff, and alumnae.
