  3. Identify and Engage Stakeholders
  4. Identify Needs and Assets
  5. Select Programs
  6. Tailor Programs
  7. Plan Your Evaluation
  8. Implement Programs

The tools included were created based on findings from an accompanying literature review, which includes results from key informant interviews, surveys, and focus groups; peer-reviewed literature; and best practices for preventing interpersonal violence within the community college context.
