Self Defense

Most physical assaults can be avoided using risk reduction techniques. However, no one is immune from the possibility of an assault.

  • All individuals should learn prevention and basic physical defense skills.
  • The UT Police Department offers Rape Aggression Defense System (RAD) courses.
  • Core RAD courses are available to women only. However, other options are available to men, children, and seniors.

Visit the UT Police RAD Program site for more information.
