Sexual Citizens: A Landmark Study

Sexual Citizens: A Landmark Study of Sex, Power and Assault on Campus

2020 Virtual Reunions

Friday May 29, 2020, 3:00 – 4:30 pm ET

Register in advance for this webinar:

 After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting..

Author/Interviewer: Jennifer S. Hirsch, PhD, Professor of Sociomedical Sciences, Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University; Elizabeth Mitchell Armstrong *93, PhD, MPA, Associate Professor of Sociology and Public Affairs, Princeton University;  Mary Devellis ’21 (Question Moderator)

 At this moment of global pandemic, public health is more visible than ever. But public health’s core mission – to build communities in which everyone can thrive – extends beyond infectious diseases. Join us to hear Jennifer S. Hirsch, ’88 and Elizabeth M. Armstrong *93, discussing Hirsch’s groundbreaking new book, which applies a public health optic to campus sexual assault: Sexual Citizens: A Landmark Study of Sex, Power and Assault on Campus (coauthored with Shamus Khan, published by WW Norton and featured recently in PAW).

Sexual Citizens is transforming how people understand and address the most misunderstood problem on college campuses: widespread sexual assault. Drawing on their extended research on the Columbia and Barnard campuses, Hirsch and Khan present intimate portraits of life and sex among students in a way that pulls back the curtain on what it is like to be in college today. They present an entirely new way to understand sexual assault, focusing on its social roots. Their insights transcending current debates about consent, predators in a “hunting ground,” or the dangers of hooking up. Sexual Citizens points to what everyone – parents, K-12 schools, faith-based organizations, elected officials, and institutions of higher education – can do to reduce the risk of sexual assault, in college and more generally. Participants should be advised that Hirsch and Armstrong’s discussion of Sexual Citizens will include descriptions of actual sexual assaults, as students recounted them.

“COVID-19 Unleashes Telemedicine Innovations: 

 New Paradigms for Delivering Patient Care”


The arrival of COVID-19 and the pandemic-generated distancing protocols necessitated by it --- have forced a rapid departure from standard medical practice as we have known it:  indefinite postponements of elective surgeries; cancellations of routine screenings, lab work, dental care; and elimination of face-to-face, hands-on contact with our cherished family physicians.  All replaced, at least for now, by an unfamiliar world of Chat Bot screening tools; algorithm-based query agents like Vicki Vanguard; and remote patient monitoring (RPM) regimens for performing our own self-guided evaluations, under the direction of PA Navigators.  On May 12th, our panel of physicians will take us into this unfolding telehealth world and advise how we can get the most from these evolving technologies, with all their attendant pros & cons.  They will also address how this is transforming their respective medical practices --- and reconfiguring the doctor-patient relationship.

Donate your old smart phone to Connect For COVID-19!

Help this unique service project go “viral”

Imagine you are alone in a hospital, in quarantine, and you can’t even connect with family and friends because you don’t have a smart phone…

At virus hotspots across the country, countless patients - especially elderly and low-income - are suffering in social isolation without a smart device to stay connected to their families and communities. Sunny Sandhu (class of 2020) has come up with a wonderful service project, "Connect for COVID-19", and he has enlisted his classmates and alumni to help him.

“Connect for COVID-19” (  collects donations of smart devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops, spare chargers, unused earbuds) from individuals and organizations. These donations give digital access for vulnerable populations (seniors, low-income, etc.) helping tackle the social isolation of COVID-19 patients in hospitals and other care facilities. These donations also enable remote access for medical staff on the frontlines. These intrepid, masked students work with hospitals and nursing homes across the country to ensure donated devices go to the people that need it most as they fight COVID-19.

It's so easy -  fill out a form, take a photo of your devices and chargers, and then volunteers come to your house to pick up the devices. Yeah, in the Princeton area they make it ridiculously easy. They make it contact free too.

For outside the Princeton area, if you submit the donation form online, they will provide donation mailing instructions.

“Connect for COVID-19” needs phones no older than iPhone 6. Any phone that can handle Facebook and WhatsApp and text messaging. They need iPads and laptops. They need power cords, chargers, unused earbuds. They need money to buy chargers because most people don’t donate those. The device can't have any cracks and must still be working for the donation to be effective.

Security of data? There are instructions on line on how to wipe your device of data, and then the students have tech volunteers who continue to wipe out your data if you missed something.

“Connect for COVID-19” is in contact with hospitals all over New Jersey. The nurses help the seniors learn how to use the phones if that is a problem. The devices break the social isolation that many older folks and all COVID-19 patients are experiencing. This way the donation recipient can see family and friends at time where this matters more than ever.

Three ways to help:

Donate devices and power cords and chargers -

Spread the Word -
Share this website with your social networks, friends and family

Donate money through the GoFundMe campaign -

For more details, and coordinating corporate donations, please reach out to Sunny himself:
