Prioritizing School Safety: A New Curriculum for Colleges and Universities to Address Sexual Assault
August 16 2016
Last month, Carrie presented on the fifth day of the NCCPS’ Trauma-Informed Sexual Assault Investigation and Adjudication Annual Conference with speakers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Clery Center for Security On Campus, Department of Education, Department of Justice, and Victim Rights Law Center. The Institute curriculum was developed in response to a call to action in the Not Alone report, produced by the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault. In her presentation, Carrie walked participants through the mission and work products of the Task Force. These important resources are outlined in the blog post and include guidance, model policies and procedures, training and technical assistance resources, funding opportunities, and public messaging materials concerning sexual assault in educational spaces.
“As schools gear up for the next school year, I look forward to seeing how the training and techniques presented in this training are adopted and utilized in different college environments, to ensure safety for all.” ~ Carrie Bettinger-Lopez
