Meet the 2022-23 CAT Squad!

The Consent Awareness Training Squad (CATS) is a group of student leaders that work to spread awareness on and off campus about the importance of consent, healthy relationships, respect and safe alcohol habits. This ASLU-recognized student club is based on the McMinnville campus and offers a class for credit, which explores healthcare advocacy and leadership.

This year's CATS educators come from a variety of backgrounds and majors. Meet the 2022-23 squad!

Hometown: San Diego, California
Major: biochemistry and molecular biology

"I joined CATS because I wanted to help spread awareness and make sure it was known that these topics are okay to talk about. Growing up in a Hispanic household, it was really 'taboo' to talk about these topics, and they were often brushed under the rug. I want to prevent that from happening any longer."
