The NCCPS Selects 26 New Educational Instructors
January 20 2016
Burlington, VT — The National Center for Campus Public Safety (NCCPS) is pleased to announce the selection of 26 additional educational instructors for its Trauma-Informed Sexual Assault Investigation and Adjudication Educational Program. The new instructors were selected after a competitive application and selection process and join the NCCPS as they begin the national roll out of the Trauma-Informed Sexual Assault Investigation and Adjudication Educational Program, a new, groundbreaking curriculum that has been developed after rigorous pilot programming, evaluation, and updates.
“This is an exciting time for the NCCPS as we prepare to offer our curriculum to the higher education community. We are pleased to have found amazing educators to help us deliver what is, quite possibly, a game-changing trauma-informed curriculum to campus officials at institutions of higher education across the country,” said Director Kim Richmond.
The National Center for Campus Public Safety was charged by the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault in their April 2014 Not Alone report to develop a Trauma-Informed Sexual Assault Investigation and Adjudication curriculum for campus officials. To meet this mandate, the NCCPS has worked with nationally recognized subject matter experts in the fields of sexual and gender-based violence investigations, Title IX, the Clery Act, victim's advocacy, student conduct, and psychology to develop a leading-edge curriculum that will be delivered to the higher education community beginning in February 2016.
