The U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) just announced the launch of the Center for Changing Our Campus Culture. www.changingourcampus.org is a new comprehensive online clearinghouse on sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking on campus. This new website provides the latest information, materials and resources for campus administrators, faculty and staff, campus and community law enforcement, victim service providers, students, parents and other key stakeholders to use to improve campus safety.
“Colleges and universities across the country are looking for resources to improve their response to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking on campus,” said Principal Deputy Director Bea Hanson of the Office on Violence Against Women. “Visitors to the website will have access to cutting-edge tools, including sample policies, protocols, and best practices, that can be adapted and replicated on colleges and universities across the county.”
The center will continue to work collaboratively to update and maintain the website and will seek guidance and input from campus-based experts, campus communities, and grassroots groups committed to ending sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.
